Art & Wall Decor by Christa Wilm seen at Faena Hotel Miami Beach, Miami Beach - Seashell columns

Seashell columns

Photos of before and after the installation of Seashell columns placed at the Miami Beach Faena Hotel. The columns are by the Ocean Bar and next to the Damien Hirst golden mammoth near the beach. The columns are one of the most photographed objects at this hip, fun hotel.

Wilm's work is inspired by Italian grottoes and German and British castles. She tries to translate the European love of underwater fantasies into a cultivated American shell art form.

Meet the Creator

"Inspired by Italian grottoes, and German and British castles, artist Christa Wilm translates the European love of underwater fantasies into a cultivated American shell art form.

The unique color, shape, and texture of Christa's South Seashells atelier designs - chandeliers, mirrors, paneling, decorations and jewelry - can be seen at Miami's Faena and the Palm Beach Breakers hotels in the Philippe Starck and Ralph Lauren projects, and the homes of sophisticated shell-art lovers worldwide. Christa's vision spurned an international seashell-decor revival 20 years ago, when she began using sea life in contemporary works of art."
