Coral reefs are so threatened by greenhouse gas emissions, pollution and overfishing that scientists agree that they may cease to function as ecological cradles of marine life by the end of this century. As a ceramic sculptor with a background in coral reef conservation biology, I believe art impacts our emotions and can move us to value the blue planet we live on in ways that scientific data often cannot. We protect what we care about, and we care about what we know and understand. Art can bring the beauty and peril of coral reefs above the surface and into view and can inspire us to protect the ocean.
