A hobby that involves collecting rocks and seashells can be pretty entertaining. Even if we collect them, have we ever considered using them to create sculptures? The works of New Yorker Anna Chan take sculptures made of seashells to an entirely new level. As a result of the CoV19 outbreak, Chan, a jewelry designer, is currently jobless. As a result, she began going to the beach with her kid to search for seashells to pass the time.
Since most of Chan’s art is based on animals, she must choose the shells she uses exceptionally carefully so that they accurately reflect the characteristics of the creatures in real life. The very first animal-inspired shell sculpture that Chan ever made was of a turtle. Over time, she could sculpt a wide variety of creatures by combining her artistic abilities with those of her daughter. Both of them have become relatively well-known on Instagram due to the beautiful artwork they have created using shells found at the beach.
Chan’s previously little time-killing behavior has suddenly expanded significantly. “Whenever I find a seashell, it sparks a creative idea in me. “I was collecting a bucket of moon snails for months, and it astonished me at the end,” said Chan. “In the end, I was surprised.”
