The Seahorse

Jake’s addition to the Underwater Sculpture Trail & Artificial Reef Project is The Seahorse – a 3m tall, 500kg mild steel replica of a West Australia Seahorse that sits above a seaweed habitat made from 12mm rebar and reused metal mill balls!
 
The body of the Seahorse itself is made from hundreds of 10mm rods, welded together in a gabion structure over the span of 6 months, with rocks filling the inside (similar to a gabion wall) to act as additional marine habitats.
 
Jake is a sculpture artist from Donnybrook who specialises in a range of steel products and is well-known in the region for his sculpture entries at Sculptures by the Bay, Dunsborough – having won the People’s Choice Award in 2017.
 
The sea life and surrounding farming life has evidently formed a large part in his creative inspiration and he now runs Old Coast Studio in Bunbury that displays some of his amazing work.
