Artist Courtney Mattison Sculpts Colossal Ceramic Coral Reefs


In celebration of the exotic beauty of coral reefs and emphasizing the threats they face, artist Courtney Mattison sculpts large-scale ceramic installations that look to environmental science and biology for creative inspiration. the third in the series of oversized reef sculptures is ‘Our Changing Seas III’ — a monumental wall piece made using simple tools, like chopsticks and paint brushes, where each individual element is carefully shaped and textured by hand. Mattison mimics the repetitive growth of coral colonies by poking thousands of holes into some of the pieces, whereas others are made to resemble delicate, branch-like structures
