The Ostentatious Oyster

R 200.00

A love for blue and white china, upcycling and upliftment have led to the creation of The Ostentatious Oyster.

Discarded shells from sustainably farmed Knysna Oyster Co oysters are transformed into beautiful décor items. Each shell is unique and découpaged following the organic shape of the shell.

The Ostentatious Oyster has enabled Rethabile Mafomekoane and Thania Jende to be re-employed and continue supporting their families after losing their jobs due to Covid.

The découpaged and delicately gold or silver- ornamented oyster shell bowls, salt and pepper bowls, doorknob hangers and Christmas decorations can be purchased at the De Grendel Tasting room in Cape Town and at The Knysna Oyster Co at the V & A Waterfront.

All orders received will be découpaged in a blue and white pattern. For more pattern options please visit www.theostentatiousoyster.co.za
