At his environmentally-conscious studio in Southern California, James Stone merges the ancient media of glass and metal to not only to create beauty and artistry, but to send an imperative message…
His latest mega-work "Last Call Before We Eat Them All" is an entire 30-foot wall, a dazzling yet powerful warning that the fish and other sea life are disappearing at historically unprecedented rates due to over-fishing and over-consumption and they simply will not last forever.
By creating sea creature and oceanic-themed sculptures, James not only portrays the beauty of the oceans' diverse flora and fauna. But more significantly, his art speaks to the delicate sustainability of our world's largest ecosystem and its inhabitants.
James Stone's desire is straightforward: for people to see and enjoy his art - perhaps to purchase - but most importantly to chatter and talk about the art and the environment, igniting a spark and ultimately causing others to think about their seafood choices and their everyday lifestyle actions and purchases.
