Plankton Art

I'm always intrigued when artists use marine life for inspiration, but these are even better than most. The artists vision:

The two artists, Louise Hibbert and Sarah Parker-Eaton, use nature for inspiration to create intriguing sculptures. Here's some from their Plankton series:

Now those are some nifty marine-inspired artworks. But the artists don't just recreate plankton - they also have been inspired by jellies and seed pods.
