Nestled near the center of the Philippine archipelago lies the picturesque Panay, an island garden renowned for the Capiz shells harvested annually from the warm Jintotolo Channel.
Ever since the 16th Century, when Ferdinand Magellan’s Spanish Explorers discovered them, our Capiz shells (also known as pearl oysters) have been prized for the natural iridescence and delicate beauty.
As our ancestors have for centuries, artisans from our village have handcrafted Capiz shells into highly decorative art forms, such as the two smaller Water Lilies or Bird House Wind Chime. Each piece is hand-painted using colorfully translucent pigments and trimmed in long-lasting electro-coated metal.
No two lilies are identical, each is a joyful reflection of the artists’ appreciation of our native Capiz shells coupled with unsurpassed skill in transforming their natural raw beauty into a pleasingly aesthetic home and garden decoration.
We hope you enjoy your Capiz Water Lily as much as we have enjoyed bringing it to you. Mabuhay!
