OYSTER + MUSSEL

Launching November 2017 the Oyster and Mussel sculptural tables are created using Jesmonite and Oyster or Mussel shells respectively. The tables offer a high buff finish revealing the natural shell inclusions and the sliced inner sheen of their iridescent Nacre layers. Each version uses a flecked and marbled casting to accentuate each species natural colours.

Shells have long been used as aggregates for building materials, poultry feed, crop farming acidity balancers, and offer a variety of historical and mythical narratives.

Working with popular London restaurant and fishmongers Sutton & Sons, the sculptural stools use shells kindly donated by the restaurant, creating a recycled and reused material to become the celebrated centrepiece within the work. 

Tables are handmade and cast in our London studio, and also employ traditional chair caning techniques with custom made stainless steel frames. They are made to order at a limited edition of 10 each. If you are interested in a commissioning one of the series please feel free to email studio@zuzamengham.com with your enquiry.
