Many great artists have summoned the motivating means of a fascinating muse and to Del Mar artist George Foster his inspirational goddess has been the ocean and her enduring breath of enchanting beauty.

Created from an array of copper, mica, paper and glass Foster's "sea life" sculptures are coined Sealights.

These symbols express his artistic self as much as his dedicated conservationist side, which is why a portion of each Sealight sale is donated to the Birch Aquarium at Scripps.

These contributions help to continue the needed research into the preservation of the ocean's balance.

His light sculpture begin from a simple sheet of copper. Under the night sky of San Diego, the panel of copper is placed into scorching flames (within a shoreline fire ring) until it begins to glow. Then it is cooled by submerging it into cold water for a few quick seconds.

Originally a sturdy object, the copper is now pliable and ready to be hammered into shape the shell of the Sealight. Before a Sealight is fully developed it goes through four metamorphic stages beginning with the application of paper or mica for the fins, creating and inserting the glass eyes, painting or applying solutions for the finish and then adding the light bulbs and electrical parts.

Finally a brief description is attached to the back of each fish, which includes biographical information and whether or not it is endangered.

Whether you enjoy fishing, sailing, snorkeling, surfing or ocean gazing these lights will take you under the surf and into the vast world full of extraordinary vitality.

The lovely lady that Foster refers to as the ocean holds magnificent creatures and it is Foster's calling to replicate that life for all to enjoy.

A Sealight provides radiance at night, casts distinctive patinas as it ages and magically does its part to bring the wonder of the ocean into your heart.
