Ballroom Blitzz, Unique Shell Mirror by Shellman Scandinavia, Sweden

US$4,356.59

About

This is an elegant, shiny shell mirror (ø 102 cm) with a frame that continuously reflects the different lights in a day. “Ballroom Blitzz” is a first in a series of round mirrors where the two Shellman artists take advantage of the pearly inside of the small abalone species - Haliotis Glabra. It’s no surprise that it’s also referred to as the glistening abalone.  Following the tradition of late Sydney-based shell artist Paul Bruce and Dutch shell artist Niels van Alphen, the third Shellman generation is now based in south Sweden. In truth, the current Shellman is two shell men. Mikael Hjärtsjö and his son Buster left successful careers in advertising and at Apple respectively to create unique high-quality mirror frames and sculptures, covered with treasures from sea and beach. Each work - freeform or strictly patterned - is a true conversation piece in its own right, following Shellman’s meticulous ambitions: good enough is not enough! Shell art by Shellman standards is a painstaking yet rewardingly slow process that has rendered clients in the US, Spain, commission work to Sicilian palazzos and of course, Sweden. This round glistening frame has its inner edges lined with beautiful Umbonium button top shells and the outside with ring top cowries. One inner top circle presents the intriguing and uniquely patterned Haliotis Glabra with individual greenish patterns.
