Vertical Reef

Having developed a horizontal coral reef, I am now working on a larger scale vertical coral reef. 

The reef will be made from  clear and flecked white   glass,  blown into coral-like formations and grouped into clusters, reminiscent of the reef.  Back lighting will allow the reef to brighten and fade, reflecting the state of the reef.  

'Vertical Reef', aims to get viewers questioning, discussing and acting to bring about changes to our current lifestyles.   In so doing, we may be able to slow down, even reverse the impact of global warming upon our oceans.
