I AM WATER
Whale Shark Project
This little ink whale shark is the starting point for a much bigger project - I’m going to create a ceramic mural inspired by this incredible ocean giant.
I’ve chosen a whale shark to act as a reminder that oceans unite our blue planet – from the Philippines to the Galapagos, Mexico to the Maldives, coastal and island communities around the world have become synonymous with these enigmatic sharks.
I want to highlight the beauty and vulnerability of these huge animals – despite their popularity, whale sharks are an endangered species. By building a mural out of over 200 individual and unique tiles, each and every part will play a vital role in the bigger picture – and that’s where you can get involved! Sponsor the project and you can choose a piece of the puzzle to be made in your name.
Most importantly of all, this project is in support of I AM WATER foundation, whose work with costal communities helps to empower the next generation of ocean conservationists.
