On Behalf of Shell (6″)

Out of stock

Everyone loves oysters on the half shell. These beauties, “On Behalf of Shell,” will last much longer than a meal, and might even feed your soul – each piece is made with recycled plastic bags instead of embroidery floss. It is perfect for your beach house, your bathroom, or any space that celebrates natural balance and the outdoors.

I came up with this design while I was working on an embroidery hoop of the harbor in my home town – I used an single piece of plastic bag instead of embroidery thread, to show the true condition of our beautiful shoreline. I loved the contrast in texture, and an idea was born. Why not help oysters clean up our oceans by taking my plastic bags out of the ecosystem, and turning them into art? Shell Gas might not be responsible for these bags specifically, but all plastics are made from fossil fuels.

My art is informed by a Master’s degree in Environmental Education ; it is driven by a need to understand and to convey the beauty of the natural world and the built environment.
