The spiral of the Nautilus shell is ancient and you'll see it repeated throughout history. As it did for the ancients, it also holds a great fascination for me. I find the gentle spiral to be calming and beautiful. This piece is 19.5 inches in diameter and 5 inches deep. A kiln carve firing created the texturing and a second firing created the gorgeous shapes, depth and folds.
When the process is complete it still is a wonder to me that one can take an old window and transform it.
New Nautilus is priced at $195 and is dishwasher safe. A sculpture for your table and then you can toss a salad in it! :)
