Texture Study: CORAL

  • In these sculptures, I am exploring different methods of using cheap, common, household materials to make something mimic the appearance of nature. I wanted the materials to be almost unrecognizable and seamlessly create a convincing, naturalistic texture. This series is a study on coral formations.
