Most coral's are made up of large colonies of thousands of individual animals - coral polyps. The soft tentacles of coral polyps are mostly extended at night so we rarely see these creatures in action, or at all. This piece takes inspiration from these elusive creatures, depicting a maze of twisting tentacles without the corals calcium carbonate skeleton that we know so well.
