All life size these beautiful shells are made in clay which is then glazed and hand painted. Some have removable nuts and some have lids which can sit on top of the shell or can be displayed alongside the main shell, as if it has fallen from the tree and split open.
This success of this stand alone collection lies in the creation of the “real thing”. All design work, glaze development and production is carried out in the studio in the West Midlands, U.K. The attention to detail is paramount, each piece is individually considered, with several layers of glaze added to create both colour and texture, giving a ”super-real” effect and accuracy of finish.
