Sealife, Crystal and Silver Objets of Beauty



Pieces from our NIGHTSEA COLLECTION by Isabeau Grey are again available and currently being uploaded below. We will be adding additional pieces so check back often.


Reminiscent of pale, luminescent sea life under crystalline stars and the silvery light of the moon -- Crystal embellished, beautiful specimens of pale sea life are forever bound in rough, organically sculpted metalwork to antique silver pedestals and bottles - our Nightsea Collection is made exclusively in our studio by the sea... it is beautifully weathered yet refined and will grow even more lovely as time goes by.



Greyfreth Sealife and Silver Objets of Beauty
The pale and mysterious beauty of sea relics coupled with the elegance of silver that shows signs of the years is magical to me. Add to the mix opulent leaded crystal and it is almost too much beauty to bear. This one of a kind piece of art is a wonderful testament to the above described beautiful contradiction and marriage of both the rough and the refined.

Peeking out between arms of farm raised Elkhorn Coral are flashes of light being refracted from crystal chandelier remnants while silvery pearls of solder dot the organically sculpted frame of heavy metalwork. The coral and crystal crown a vintage silver plated. beautifully shaped ornate Baroque vessel that time and the elements have eaten away at the bits of the sterling silver and left in its place a perfect patina. All components come together in a gorgeous luxe curiosity that looks as though it has always been one single piece and will grow even more lovely with time.

This one of a kind piece of art is part of our beloved Nightsea Collection and is stunning enough to stand on its own or be the perfect addition or start to any discerning collector's anthology of luxe curiosities from our design studio by the sea.

Greyfreth Sealife and Silver Objets of Beauty
Fiery crystal remnants that once bejeweled antique, vintage and new crystal chandeliers beautifully embellish a crusty, calcified highly textured, earthen hued lowcountry oyster shell, creating a sublime mix as well as a lovely tension of rough and refined. Organically sculpted, weathered metalwork binds the meticulously cut crystals to the sea relic and forever marries them to the detailed vessel of tarnished, vintage silver. Tiny silvery pearls of polished solder are artistically placed amid the refractive crystal, adding an additional layer of texture and a bit of whimsy.

This one of a kind piece of art is part of our beloved Nightsea Collection and as seen below, it can be displayed with either side facing front.

Greyfreth Sealife and Silver Objets of Beauty
A stunning study in texture and both complementing and contrasting beauty. A graceful, highly textured vintage sea star boasts mesmerizing textures, patterns and subtle, variegated shades of soft cream and sea salt white. Heavy, organically sculpted metalwork is embellished with diminutive pearls of solder, adding a bit of whimsy and lovely texture. Patinated with the hues of aged and salt-weathered iron, the metal forever holds the slender sea life in mid-pirouette as if it were still dancing within the undulating water of the ocean. Serving as the elegant pedestal is a weighty vessel of salt-eaten antique silver. Tall and sophisticated, the silver has beautiful detail an is monogrammed with the letter, "D" - we like to think it stands for Dreamy... Gorgeous alone and stunning peppered in to any of our collections. A wonderful Holiday item for a cedar draped mantle...

Our Right-facing Gazing Glass



Our Left-facing Gazing Glass


One of our most requested and beloved creations - our Gazing Glasses. A luxurious curiosity with both contrasting yet complementing beauty. A perfect, elegant round of widely beveled glass has been framed out in an organically sculpted application of rough metalwork and washed in the weathered hues of rusted an salt-eaten iron - a beautiful juxtaposition of rough and refined. Meticulously cut Austrian and antique crystal chandelier remnants are forever held within the solder -- embellishing the beveled glass like air bubbles clinging to the glass as if it were a shipwreck treasure that has been hidden away for centuries at sea. Catching and refracting an amazing amount of light, a confetti of color explodes as light dances across the faceted crystal. Diminutive pearls of silver solder dot the metalwork frame adding additional beauty and a bit of whimsy to these beautiful pieces of art which crown classical, antique pedestals of chippy, naturally patinated silver.

Organically sculpted, weathered metalwork binds the meticulously cut crystals to the sea relic and forever marries them to the fluted vessel of tarnished, sterling silver. Dings, dents and folds offer testimony to the long life of the silver - we see these as character rather than flaws. Tiny silvery pearls of polished solder are artistically placed amid the refractive crystal, adding an additional layer of texture and a bit of whimsy.
