Pilgrim Shells

Samuel Levack & Jennifer Lewandowski

2013, series of unique works

€320 each

Pilgrim Shells are colourful totemic objects sculpted in various materials including plaster, jesmonite, paint and pigment. They are cast from curious abstract rubber shapes washed up on the beach. Found and collected on the coast of East Riding, Yorkshire, the original objects were made of tractor tyres, improvised to weigh down fishing nets cast into the sea. They are strangely figurative, like masks or aliens carrying messages from another way of life and another time. Following the artists' intervention they now act as totemic offerings to all travellers, summoning the movements of the ocean and the histories of the bay.

Dimensions: approximately 250mm diameter.

Materials: Variable: jesmonite and pigment; plaster and pigment; plaster, pigment and spray paint. Unique hand cast works include certificate of authenticity.
