Our dentist wanted something new in the waiting room to catch the attention of her patients. She’d seen one of our pieces combining white and darker shells but wanted a bigger version. We suggested one lying down, got the measures and the go ahead. The white flows between the dark peninsulas was an idea that came out of nowhere. When we where done it looked like white water running through the landscape and over the edge – White Rivers!
