Titled “Bottom Feeders”, this amazing series by Mary O’Malley series depicts cups, teapots, plates, saucers and bowls that appear to have been recovered from the sea-bottom, covered by flora and fauna over the years and wholly consumed by coral, seaweed, crustaceans, and tentacles. However, these remarkable pieces were actually created by O’Malley by hands, the teapots and other dishes are thrown and hand-built porcelain, to which she adds sculpted wildlife coated with red iron oxide. Here are part of the series, and you can discover more on O’Malley’s site.
As our favorite underwater photographer, Alexander Semenov just released a new set of photos about marine worms, known as polychaetes. From the depths of the cold White sea to the coral reefs of the Great Barrier in Australia, Semenov photographed those unbelievable creatures. Some of them were collected recently and they are still unsubscribed! Honestly, some of these worms are quite pretty, just like flower; while some of them do have disturbing looking, just reminds me of those creepy sci-fi movie. Anyway, take a look at these amaizng shots and imagine there are more undiscovered terrors living in the deep.

There are some 2,000 species of starfish living in all the world’s oceans, from tropical habitats to the cold seafloor. The five-arm varieties are the most common, hence their name, but species with 10, 20, and even 40 arms exist. And actually, there are not fish but rather close cousins of sand dollars and sea urchins. However, no matter what you call them, it is exciting enough to have a sight of them for those beachgoers. Rocks, sand, rippling water and even in the shell, take a look at below 19 photos about starfish. Just hope I can be there photo those photos
