Capiz Shell Lighting
Capiz shells, popularly used for many different decorative purposes, come from windowpane oysters, which are found on muddy shores near bays, coves and lagoons. The shells are harvested and transformed by artisans into one-of-a-kind organic works of art. To create this oversized pendant light, hundreds of capiz shells were gathered, shaped, cut to size, then inlaid to a steel frame. Once illuminated, the shells cast a filtered pearlescent glow throughout the space.
