Louise Hibbert recreates curious wonders of the marine world, like this Cinachyra, a spherical sponge featuring a bright orange surface pattern.
Hibbert describes her process: “I find that using the lathe gives my work rhythm and balance, almost like a structural backbone within each piece. I then begin carving, texturing, applying airbrushed inks, resins or metals to create the intricate details.”
