Medusae - Pax (cobalt)

Regular price $200.00

Each wall-hanging Medusae Jellyfish has been handcrafted and is a unique one-of-a-kind sculpture. The jellyfish is made with a sea urchin shell that has been filled with paper clay to make it solid and less fragile. The tentacles were made with epoxy clay and wire. The sculpture is finished with acrylic paint and metallic glaze. It is sealed with an archival water-based polyurethane varnish.

Since 2014, 95% of the magnificent kelp forests have vanished along the entire Pacific Coast of North America. Warming water has caused a massive die-off of sunflower starfish and an exodus of sea otters; both the urchin's natural predators. In their absence, the population of sea urchins has exploded and they have destroyed thousands of acres of forests in less than a decade. Marine biologists and scientists are tirelessly researching many solutions to mitigate the damage. Like all climate research, their efforts are woefully underfunded.

The profit for all Medusae jellyfish sold will go towards Kelp Forest preservation and research. 

NOTE: The photo depicts the way the jellyfish hangs from a small loop in the back.
