The Fish House Shell
In honor of the old fish house we have had this shell made to commemorate her long life sitting on the Mississippi River. We took this photograph in the winter of 2021. A piece of the fish house will always be with you.
A little about the artist:
We get our shells from local fisherman here at the Jersey Shore , who collect them after they are done with what they need and we pick them up every week. We then get them home, clean them, dry them and sort through which ones we will be able to use. The ones that I can't use, they will be ground up for our garden in the backyard. I then decorate them with recycled napkins. Then they are glazed and painted with gold liquid on the edges.
