DECORATIVE ART FROM SEA AND BEACH
WHO IS SHELLMAN?
Shellman is really two Shellmen. We left careers behind to devote our creative skills to the wonderful world of sea shells. I, Mikael Hjärtsjö, left a life in advertising and my stepson Buster Eriksson a speedy career at Apple. We now create decorative shell art in our studio in Helsingborg, south Sweden: mirror frames, wall sculptures (and other cool objects to come). Our craft is unique in Scandinavia. All studio works are for sale and we do commission work.
HOW DO SHELLMAN WORK?
Shelling is a slow and meditative process. Anyone not connected with his inner patience would argue: painstakingly slow.
It’s simple really. We glue one shell to another and eventually a shell frame is finished. It takes days, or weeks, depending on size and complexity. And it takes a good eye and understanding of which shell that goes with another.
WHO DO SHELLMAN SELL TO?
Anyone who appreciate something totally different in interior decoration should take a close look at what we do. You’ll get a unique conversation piece that will turn heads and make jaws drop.
We want to see our works in private homes, hotels and restaurants, top end fashion shops and boutiques. Or make a statement in your office or conference room – anywhere you want to raise eyebrows. We do commission work to fit that specific wall in the hallway or the bathroom, in the hotel lobby or restaurant foyer. We’d love to work with interior decorators, designers and home stylists.
