This is a hand-decorated Native Irish oyster shell with an abstract wave design. There is a variety of colour versions, giving the customer plenty of choices. The outside of the shell is highlighted with hand-painted gold edging.
Just as each shell is unique, so is each painting as they are done live on the Oyster shell.
This is a unique piece of art that combines creativity, nature, and culture. The design captures the fluidity and movement of waves, creating a sense of tranquillity and harmony.
The use of a Native Irish oyster shell in this artwork holds cultural significance. Oysters have long been associated with Ireland’s coastal regions and are considered a delicacy in Irish cuisine. By incorporating this element into the artwork, the artist pays homage to Ireland’s rich maritime and cultural heritage.
The Native Irish Oyster, or Ostrea edulis, is a prized delicacy that seafood lovers have enjoyed for centuries. It’s not as common as it used to be and is typically harvested between September and April only.
The rare shells boast an abstract design resembling ocean waves, coming in various breathtaking colours.
Beyond its visual appeal, these artworks also serve as a tribute to Ireland’s deep-rooted history and rich cultural heritage.
We believe that every shell has a tale to tell. Our oysters are from the west coast of Ireland, picked from the waters of the world-famous “Galway Bay” part of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
Shells are genuinely one-of-a-kind gifts because no two are alike. They are tumbled by the wild Atlantic Ocean waves and shaped by the changing seasons, resulting in varying sizes and shapes. We work with what nature has given us. Variations such as; growth marks, ragged edges, chipped backs, and barnacles make each one special.
Every shell is individually picked, cleaned, prepared, hand-painted and decorated by our artists at our studio in Galway, Ireland.
Whether you receive this as a gift or purchase it for yourself as a decoration, a memento of a trip, or for friends or family to mark an occasion or relationship, you are becoming part of this Oyster’s tale.
