Radiolarian Circle

This was the first installation of these pieces and I loved how the blue wall made the white porcelain pop. Each hand built porcelain form is inspired by radiolarians; single cell zooplankton with intricate silica based skeletal structures. Within all oceans are planktons, tiny marine drifters that make up the majority of all marine life in the ocean. They are the base of the aquatic food web, they trap carbon from the atmosphere and produce 50% of the oxygen in the atmosphere. They are fascinating, beautiful and are vital to sustain life on our planet.

The installation composed in a large ring, has some pieces attached flat on the wall and some are floating off with wire stems at various heights. The piece is approximately 7’x7′ and floats off the wall about 4″. Custom installations are available.
