Item Description

"Golden Codess" by Susan Gordon

Medium: Shells

Size: 19" x 8"

Artist Statement:

" As I gathered shells on the beaches of Cape Cod, I decided that I had to do something special with the Jingle shells. The Jingle shells are small roundish shells, with a beautiful luminescence and their colors range from white to orange. When I heard about the cod auction I decided that was the perfect way to create with them and my idea for the "Golden Codess" began to take shape.
