Still Life with Shells by Balthasar van der Aast 1640
Taking the challenge with the July Art Bead Scene painting, Still Life with Shells, has been a fun opportunity to beach comb like I did as a child, but this time the shells are made of ceramic clay!! I used a shell I had on hand to help me make my imaginary sea creature homes into wearable beads. I was inspired by the the yellow, browns and orange in Van der Aast's palette when it came time to add the glazes.
Here is a selection of what I made
Dancing Sea Creature Pendant
I have added some of these to my Etsy shop.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
