About Coastal Creations
Ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated with shells. It’s hard to believe that such simple creatures can make such interesting shapes, perfect spirals, and patterns in so many beautiful colors. Shells are the perfect natural art, and each one is a treasure. Wherever I have lived, my window sills have always been littered with shells. Looking at them takes me back to tropical vacations and gets me through the long, cold winters of Maine.
Maine doesn’t have the variety of shells that the tropics do, however, they are just as beautiful. For the Maine mirrors, I use only local shells. Most of the material I have collected on one of my frequent beachcombing trips. I am so fortunate that going to work often means heading for the beach! Just like the tropical mirrors, these evoke wonderful memories of warm summer days at the shore.
