Glass Coral Reef!
Myself and 3 of my classmates worked as a team on this project. We poured hot glass over crushed glass to make the base of each reef. Each coral was hot sculpted individually and then brought back up to temperature and hot attached to the base, some were also cold attached later. We borrowed two fishtanks and got some sand from the river for the class setup and a had a projector of underwater scenes behind it.
Wire wrapping lots of stuff.
