Claude the hermit crab

Claude the Hermit Crab, inspired by a piece of found wood which had a natural channel reminiscent of the opening of a sea shell. Carving the back of the piece defined the shell shape. The legs are made from reclaimed metal punches, the claws from corroded steel collected during a trip to the coast.

Found wood, Steel punches, Reclaimed metals.

Nautilus

Currently working on a series of projects, I was really pleased with how the hermit crab had turned out so I thought I would have a go at a similar piece, the Nautilus. This is much larger than the Hermit and will have a greater number of components. The wood I have used for the shell is Spalted Ash. The pencil demonstrates the scale of this piece. Next step will be forming the tentacles.
