Last October at Kent Youth’s Holiday Galleria show in Chestertown, Maryland I met Sherry Sonntag-Whorl of Classic Glass Studios and bought three of her wonderful stained glass works for my sunroom, one of which contains a nautilus shell. So I started wondering what the actual nautilus creature looks like. Once I did some research I was thrilled! I think they are pretty kool creatures with their dangling tentacles and big, puffy eyes peeking out from under their hooded shells. Viola! Here is my interpretation.
