The "Bay Scallop", featuring a Nantucket silhouette that's been cut out with a water laser jet.  The natural, profound beauty of this shell, which is caught locally and harvested during the fall and winter months, can be enjoyed year round.  It serves as the perfect gift to spark a Nantucket memory for anyone.

About the artist:
Locally made by Nick Nickerson.  Nick, a commercial fisherman was diagnosed with throat cancer a decade ago, which forced him to take a break from fishing.  To stay busy, Nick started making shell mirrors out of the sea scallop shells, which are normally discarded at sea.  In 2017, Nick found another use for the sea scallop shells creating these elegant ornaments.  The silhouettes are cut out with a water laser jet.  He thought they would make a nice local gift to take home.
