Ceramic Coral Reef by Courtney Mattison

Our Changing Seas III is part of an ongoing series of large-scale ceramic coral reef sculptures by artist and ocean advocate Courtney Mattison to inspire policy makers and the public to conserve our changing seas.

"At its heart, this piece celebrates my favorite aesthetic aspects of a healthy coral reef surrounded by the sterile white skeletons of bleached corals swirling like the rotating winds of a cyclone. There is still time for corals to recover even from the point of bleaching if we act quickly to decrease the threats we impose. Perhaps if my work can influence viewers to appreciate the fragile beauty of our endangered coral reef ecosystems, we will act more wholeheartedly to help them recover and even thrive."
