I grew up in the Philippines and capiz was used in so many decorative objects...the pearlescent shell is native to the region. I adore the subtle lustre - and the way it throws colours is just stunning. So quite a thrill to be working with the medium for the first time! All of the pieces are hand cut, dyed, and placed allowing this ombre pattern to really come to life in 3-D! These coasters are the most vivid shade of green - a sure gift hit!
