Sea stars by Fog and Swell

If you know anything about me, than you won’t be surprised that I love, LOVE, **LOVE** the beautiful soft sculptures made by Kristy of Fog and Swell. I now own a sea urchin, a textile art wall hanging (depicting a beach scene), and 3 sea stars. Each of these items bring me joy and inspire me.

The wall hanging was a big deal for me at the time because I have loved it for a long time, but couldn’t bring myself to buy it as it was (rightly) priced in the $200 range. But, she had a sale, which I took advantage of, and, being the sapping coast loving gal that I am, I might possibly have gotten choked up with joy when it arrived.

The urchin is one of a few treasures I keep on my kitchen table.

The sea stars are meant to be tree ornaments, but I love them too much to keep them boxed up for most of the year, so I hung them on my wall next to my gallery of pictures from magazines and my Katie Daisy prints.

Clearly, I need at least one more sea star. She does custom orders, so I’m thinking about asking for one more star (maybe a repeat of the lovely yellow one in this picture) and maybe a mussel (like one of these gorgeous pieces) to hang at the bottom.

Just so you know, she has a blog where she posts lovely pictures and such. She can also be found on Facebook.

  2. I so agree. I love the beach and the ocean. They are my passion. The ocean animals bring me such joy. I own a Humpback whale, Boro whale, and sea turtle and they are displayed throughout my house with my seashells, pebbles, driftwood etc..from my trips to the beach. I can so related to your passion Anne and to Kristy’s amazing work which brings me so much joy. DREAM BIG!!!

    • I would love to own one of her whales. They’re so lovely. And, I used to have tonnes of beach treasures (shells, driftwood, etc.), but then I moved across country while being a poor student and I had to leave so many treasures behind. But, someday I will collect more treasures and maybe even live closer to the coast again.
