Artist Designs Cityscape Shells For Hermit Crabs

posted by Nora Drapalski - 

Japanese artist Aki Inomata uses an unusual subject as a source of inspiration.

Hermit crabs.

That's right, Inomata designs "shells" for hermit crabs!

And they're stunning.

She's been designing shells for years, but has only recently gained international attention for her work.

Can't get enough of her delightful designs?
