Ocean in Motion sculpture series
created by Fred Dobbs
Sculptural works depicting wildlife in the Pacific Ocean. Inspired by a close association with the Ocean, from exploring tide pools, to being in the water and on it. I have drawn my inspiration from my experience of curiosity and wonder with what nature provides.
Pacific Sea Otter
My fascination with Sea Otters likely started when I first saw them in captivity at the Vancouver Aquarium, I could have watched them for hours frolicking about. As I learned more about them my respect for these unique creatures deepened. The smallest of all marine mammals with the densest fur in the animal kingdom.

Sea Otter Plaque
The Sea otter plaque represents the correlation between bull kelp, sea urchins, and sea otters. An important balance is struck when the sea otters consume the sea urchins thereby minimizing the sea urchins ability to eat the bull kelp and thus the bull kelp thrives giving the sea otter a place to call home.
