A half shell was good enough for Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus." Can humble condiments require more? Four clam or scallop shells make a summery set of salt-and-pepper dishes.
Four clam or scallop shells
Hot glue and hot glue gun
Run four shells per set through a dishwasher, secured in the silverware caddy.
For the base, turn two shells topside up, and hot-glue them together at the hinge.
Glue together the other two shells; then lay them faceup and crosswise over the base, and glue. Now bring on the chowder.
