This project was awarded a public art award by Laguna Beach Beautification Council in 2016.
This street-scape renovation/ pocket park creation project is composed of a sculpture, a series of stools, and a re-shaped and re-surfaced planter. The detailed cutout shapes of the sculpture and the mosaic details on the stool tops were inspired by the rich tide pool habitat of Laguna Beach located just a block away from the project site. Different sea creatures, such as sea urchin, sea anemone, star fish, are depicted in a rich detail created with cut metal and Byzantine hand cut mosaics.
