While I was flipping through one of my favourite natural history book, a name caught my eyes and my imagination.
Have you heard of the Venus's Flower Basket? It is a hexactinellid sponge. The grow below 150m (500ft) below ocean and the Victorians used to collect them for display. From this I started to googled more images of the sponges and realized that I have to make some cuts for them.
My cut is based on the general form of the glass sponges and Venus's Flower Basket. The cut is not an exact replica of the sponges but my version of it.

And while working on the drawing of the sponges, I keep having these images of microscopic creatures swimming in the vast ocean. So what can you do when such fun creatures latch onto your creative mind. You bring them to the world!
Have a nice weekend and stay creative!
