MOTHER OF PEARL

MOTHER OF PEARL

Mother of Pearl, the reflective substance that is found on the inside of a mollusc shell, has for years been known as a unique interior material. 

Once harvested, artisans cut the shells into the predetermined shapes to create the most intricate designs. 

The cut pieces of Mother of Pearl are around 2mm thick. Patterns are usually drawn onto the mould, and the pieces of Mother of Pearl, at times cut the incredible precision, are glued on the surface pattern and finally polished to the desired finish. 

Mother of Pearl can be used for the full finish of an element such as vases, wash basins and tables. MOP can also be used to create incredible wall panels, to cover pillars or for example doors. 

To another extent, Mother of Pearl is used in decorative ways, to fill drawings to create a unique finish, making every item, an ever lasting eye catcher.
