Large Norfolk Clam Shell



John Mallett

In stock


Cast from life using traditional sand casting, these large bronze clam shells are all unique.   John enjoys beach combing along the Norfolk coast and collects natural objects to recreate in bronze.  ‘Fragility transformed into strength’.  They are a joy to hold in the hand, with delicately tactile textures and a surprising weight.

Due to the  nature of the process used to create these shells, they may differ slightly from the one shown in the images.  If you would like to view images of actual stock before purchasing, please contact us.

Size: 8cm x 6.5 cm across, 2.5cm deep
(all sizes approximate and measured at widest/deepest points)
