Glass Seashells

 Bring home the secrets of the ocean with a handmade blown glass seashell or glass seaslug by Head Change Arts! Artistian made in the USA! 

I have been looking at numerous seashells books and reading about the creatures that live in them. I have found that shells come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Many times the actual slug (or other sea creature is enormouse compared to the shell. If you would like to see some pictures of my natural inspiration, here you go: National Geographic Photoshoot of Nudibranches which are a kind of seaslug http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2008/06/nudibranchs/doubilet-photography . And here is another National Geographic page that gives information about these toxic ocean slugs http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/invertebrates/nudibranch/.

This beautiful shell could have been home to an amazing sea creature; if it wasn’t glass! Another unique seashell brought to you by Head Change Arts! This one of a kind beauty has a few special features. The glass that was fumed* on the inside of the glass was actually found in the creek near our house. The area we live in happens to have some of the purest gold in the world (without having to be refined.) The gold color was then layered with some amber.  A swirl of colors was added to the end of the seashell. The outside of the shell has clear lines, and dots with some spikey kind of additions.  This seashell is almost 4″ from one side to the other and is about 2″ wide (including spikes) and stands about 1 1/2″ tall.                         Created by Lisa. $55-
