If I understand your question correctly, what you should do is create
a data frame (say ``DF'') with columns "x" and "y" specifying the  
coordinates of
the points on (the border of) your ``wave shape''.  The points should  
be listed
in the ***anticlockwise*** direction, and the last point should  
***not*** repeat
the first.  Then do

	W <- owin(poly=DF)
