White Caps Sawtooth Pen Shell


Waves washed this ugly shell to shore giving it the unique wear that you see here… scrapes and breaks look like bubbling white capped waves in a stormy sea. You can almost hear the crashing power of the angry ocean that made art of a once smooth and simple shell.



Sawtooth pen shells are some of my favorite subjects in The Ugly Shell project… Something about their iridescence, ┬árainbow of colors, and depth of layers makes each an incredible subject. This one in particular reminded me of the white capped waved that pushed it onto the beach after a big storm.
