Shells - Maxi Green
Lucie’s love of ceramics making has rapidly grown in recent years, and she has since exhibited 6 sell-out shows and installations, with shells travelling to all corners of the globe to adorn many beautiful homes and spaces. Shellegance has also had fabulous international media coverage!
Each ceramic shell in this shop is unique. Lucie de Moyencourt loves to improvise with her brushwork and colours and approaches each shell whimsically. The artist is given a chance to experiment with the complex and mystical mediums of Stoneware, Porcelain, Earthenware, Underglazes, Glazes and sometimes also Lustre. You might see iterations and repeats in patterns and colours, but as each shell is handmade and hand-painted, no two shells will ever be the same, making them highly collectible.
Each shell comes with its own custom brass wire hanging device made by wire artist, George Magaso. The shells might look like plates, but do not be fooled; they are very poor performing plates! Due to their undulating edges, any sauce is sure to spill! It is recommended to keep them as purely decorative wall hanging ceramics.
Please note that the brass wire used for the hanging device is a one bend wire (do not try to bend it twice as it will snap). If you would like to tilt your shell to a different angle, we recommend hanging it off the nail by the brass attachment and securing it with putty to your desired angle.
