This handmade art piece was created with micro plastics found around Oahu. I used these pieces to create a wave, reminding everyone to help get those plastics off our beaches, as the not only affect us, but the marine within the ocean. It’s so cool how the plastic can look like beach glass, hence the name “Glassy Waves.” Remember to participate at beach cleanups to help saves lives!
The ocean is an important place to me because as a surfer, I grew more connected to the ocean. I feel that as people, we have a responsibility to take care of our planet and ocean. I use micro plastics sourced from the shores of O'ahu and incorporate it into my designs to create an art pieces. Getting these micro plastics off the beach, we are making a difference for our future gens.
