This delightful project brings to life Gulf Region sea animals. The 8,000-square-foot epoxy installation brings together 34 colors with blends of mother-of-pearl, marble and glass aggregate. To produce the vivid colors for the ten different sea creatures, 100 percent glass aggregate was mixed with colored matrix resins.  Each individual aquatic emblem, from the nine-inch shrimp to the 13-foot porpoise, was water-jet cut from aluminum. Three colors of blue were used to depict various depths of water.
