ICU’s (Intensive Care Units) are about the much needed protection of coral reefs, which host 25% of all marine life. Three rows of 10 small pots decorated with individually carved coral textures are mounted on the wall. The pieces are largely unglazed on the outside mimicking bleached coral, whereas the glazed micro-environment on the inside holds a coloured creature, a sparkle of life. The re-growth of corals in environmentally controlled capsules is a method that is tried today in an attempt to repopulate dead reefs.
