Anna found these bleached coral pieces on the beach, on their way to becoming sand. She wanted to give the impression that they have been quickly frozen in time as a memory of the moment they were found but also referring back to their former life in the ocean. The rough silver fixings with hammered silver reflect the irregularity or the organic structures and the roughness of the coral scraps, well as the immediacy of the moment of the creation. Aquamarine beads draw light into the pieces and take us back to their place of origin. The stones also resemble beautiful air bubbles on live coral. An epoxy resin coating of the corals contributes to the wet, "just found" look.
