James Stone, an award-winning ocean conservation mixed media sculpture artist, is an environmentally conscience glass artisan based in Escondido, CA.
About the Artist
James creates ocean creatures and sea-themed sculptures that depict the magnificence of the ocean’s diverse plants and animals. His eco-awareness message leaps out of the forged aluminum and sculpted glass pieces with the message that fish and other sea life are vanishing at unprecedented rates. Creating a dialogue about climate change, overfishing and their devastating effects on the oceans of the world is the heart of James’ work.
