Courtney Mattison, who describes herself as a visual learner, began sculpting her elaborate works inspired by sea creatures as a better way of understanding them. But over time, her love and admiration for these organisms evolved into a message about their well being and preservation. Her ongoing series, “Our Changing Seas”, features large-scale ceramic coral reef installations that present the fragile beauty of reefs and the human-caused threats they face.
