For each tree, each shell flower, each Florida beach ornament, Peter spends hours combing the local beaches in Venice, FL. Summers in Florida are very hot and makes finding shells that much harder, but Peter loves doing it. It is his passion to create using the gifts of mother nature.

After a long day of shell and sea creature hunting, never killing any animals ever, Peter rinses his bounty and washes it gently and carefully, in order not to break the very delicate shells, that make such beautiful flowers.

All the freshly washed shells, sand dollars and starfish are then laid out to dry outside, in the hot hot sun. Along with the rinsing and washing, this will remove any fishy odor left behind by its former resident.

Afterwards, every single shell needs to categorized and organized by type, size and color.

Hours and hours go into making these special Magnolia, Lily, and other shell-flowers.  One shell for each flower petal, forming a real flower in the end. It takes an immense amount of time, patience and skill! Yet, his art is prices so reasonable.
