Installation about ocean acidification by Tasmanian artist and jeweller

by Janine Combes | March 21, 2016

I've been working on some new pieces which form a collection about ocean acidification, particularly in the Southern Ocean. The impact of the carbon we release into the atmosphere on small marine species such as the pteropods or 'sea butterflies' is enormous.  Their shells are dissolving in an increasingly acidic ocean. The flow on effect for other species, including us, is going to be enormous.
