Coral Sculptures, The Hydrous

3D Printed Corals

The Hydrous is a non-profit group that seeks to provide open access to the world’s oceans by creating and sharing 3D data from coral reefs around the world as a way to better measure and understand the health of this increasingly important ecosystem.

I’m helping The Hydrous bring these beautiful structures into the physical world as a means to educate and inspire. From full-size realistically painted models to bronze-cast sculptures, these objects help to communicate one of coral reefs most valuable tools: their beautiful and complex geometry in a way that can only be fully appreciated by touch and feel.

I’ve also designed a series of small pedestal corals for them to sell in their online store.
