Sea Needles, or Tibia Fisus, are members of the family of true conchs, Strombidae. They prefer soft bottom areas in the deep Pacific to facilitate their slow feeding and minimize detection by predators. They are uniquely equipped with a columella, or spire, that can be as long or longer than the rest of the shell.

ABOUT THE MAKER
In my mind, there is little separating art and life sciences. It is like trying to extricate dance from music. Art’s purpose is to heighten our aesthetic sensibilities, to sharpen our ability to experience beauty, to empathize with those life systems we come into contact with, to derive pleasure or stimulation from our interaction with arranged elements, in whole or in part. How does nature differ? We dance with it and within it. The aesthetics (or art) of nature is the rhythm we move to. Christopher Marley
