A woman brought bags and boxes of collected shells to our studio one day. ”I used to live in India and travelled to the Maldives a couple of times. These are my shell memories from those years in my life. Do you think you can make something nice for me? Something white and romantic.” We did our very best and she was tearfully happy the first time she saw it. That felt good.
