DECONSTRUCTING A STILL LIFE
The cascading shells falling down this chandelier add a 3-D element to an otherwise blank wall. The lighting feature draws you in & invites you to sit down. Light can be a powerful transformer of space. Shadow play & scaling are lovely elements to play with when considering your lighting selections.
This still life brings me back to my first memories of beach combing for shells on the wild shores of Siletto beach on the New South Wales mid-north coast. I am forever searching out shell museums & collections to pore over & use as inspiration for my own display as well as to see what wonderful shapes, sizes & colours the world’s shells have to offer.
The tactility of the gorgeous Seaspray Chandelier , which finds itself a new home on our shop floor this week reminds me of this still life. It is proudly hand crafted from clay beads by women in South Africa. Pair it with a selection of our timber stools, linen tea towel & Superior shoulder bag for collecting your treasures. These are my picks to bring the feel of this still life into your own space.
