One Degree

Documented Forms

“One Degree” is an abstract coral inspired ceramics body of work aimed to raise awareness of the threats coral reefs face currently, if we continue to disrespectfully treat the planet with such unsustainable practices.

Whilst also highlighting the unique and rare beauty of the reefs. My ceramic sculpture uses specific techniques and textures with organic shapes and structures. My title “One Degree” is inspired by the dramatic change to the coral due to enhanced global warming causing the oceans to heat up by one degree.
