This sculpture was grown at the Johnson Oyster Company in Point Reyes, thirty miles North of San Francisco. I made a set of seven steel ribs that were covered with young, microscopically small oysters. Over a two and a half year period these oysters grew as a colony in the ocean and fused together into a solid mass. Click on the process tabs above to find out more about how this was grown.
