James Stone is an Ocean Conservation Mixed Media Sculpture Artist. He is most noted for his aluminum and sculpted glass pieces. He creates sea creatures and marine-themed sculptures that portray the ocean’s diverse flora and fauna. Most pieces portray a message of eco-awareness forged within them. His process of casting glass hot out of the furnace, directly into the sculpted metal, is unique. His technique combines metal and hot cast glass with painted accents. He creates and teaches at his studio located in Escondido, California
