SHELL ARTIST

Blott Kerr-Wilson is an international sea shell artist. Ingrid Thomas, in the book The Shell, wrote “Kerr-Wilson is the most innovative shell artist working today.” Blott set off at full steam on her shell career in 1993 after winning a design competition in The World of Interiors magazine. Since then she has created works both privately and publicly worldwide.

Her designs are informed by the mathematical nature of shells, their movement and colour. Her works are tapestries of energy, playing with light. She is inspired by the drawings of Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919, zoologist) and the sketches of Nigel Peake.

She works to commission from her Norfolk studio as well as travelling the world creating shell installations.
