Hand Stitched Clam Shell Book Sculpture
by Odelae

An ode to the Salish Sea…. from a butter clam shell (Saxidomus giganteus) discovered on the ocean floor off the coast of Orcas Island, a beautiful and sculptural clam shell hand bound book.

This book’s covers are constructed from a clam shell that holds the signatures and is bound with linen thread

Approx. 144 blank pages of white lightly specked 100% recycled text weight paper that was hand cut to reflect the natural contours of the clam shell
