Polyp 2018
Polyp 2018

Constructed from collected beach plastic including alkathene piping, joined with steel components. Coral polyps that form coral reefs filter in seawater non-selectively in order to feed. Tiny particles of non-digestible plastic prevalent in the inshore coral reefs are ingested and have been found inside the stomachs of polyps, the effects of this is not yet apparent. The form of this sculpture has been inspired by the tubular formations of coral polyp found in tropical reefs such as Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Measures 25 cm diam. x 95 cm high.

Blue Reef 2018
Blue Reef 2018

Sculpture and installation constructed from waste wood and plastics.


Dimensions vary, constructed from waste wood and plastics.

This reef has grown organically from a collection of waste plastic and wood collected from various sources including building sites, Taranaki beaches and recycling bins. It is densely colourful and diverse in shapes much like a actual coral reef. Plastic waste we see floating in gyres and washing up on beaches is only a small percentage of what is present in the ocean, it’s estimated that around 70% of commercial plastics sink. Blue Reef is a fantastic interpretation of plastic reefs forming on the ocean floor.
