Seashells are the external skeletons of a class of marine animals called Mollusks. People and mammals have their skeletons on inside of their bodies, but mollusks have their skeletons on the outside. Seashells are primarily made of calcium. Shells protect the creatures from predators, strong currents and storms.
Inspired by seashells evoking feelings of calmness, balance and purity. The ram horn shells found on Muriwai Beach inspire sculptural shapes.
