Once a fisherman’s house, the Moorish Townhouse in Olhão, Portugal was recently given a sleek and contemporary makeover. But its roots were not forgotten, with simple decor and fun features like this decorative sea urchin sculpture.

"We were thrilled to find out that the owner himself made it, using sea urchins found at Ishla of Armona"
We were thrilled to find out that the owner himself made it, using sea urchins found at Ishla of Armona. This is one of many creations born from putting together a small collection of cool marine finds like shells, twigs, thrift wood or anything interesting he comes across while walking on the beaches in Portugal. Then, at home, he is inspired to construct a collage or installation with them.
We are big fans of nature still life, and this beautiful pink and purple sea urchins in a glass dome installation is, without a doubt, our kind of art.
