colorful urchins

One of the things we did on our vacation trip was to go snorkeling, and we saw some amazing tropical fish, and many black, spiny sea urchins. What a perfect time to feature artist Norman Mooney, with his spikey, urchin-like creations.

Mooney was born in Ireland, and now lives in New York City.His sculptures are nature-inspired, an attempt to understand the joy and wonder of feeling the first rays of the sun on your face, or the explosion of color within a flower.
