• Plastic pollution highlighted at the Landmark Arts Centre

• Plastic pollution highlighted at the Landmark Arts Centre

This outstanding fish sculpture, on display in the woodland garden of the Landmark Arts Centre, was designed by teenager Kiera Jack of Teddington School and built by sculptor Lois Muddiman, using 1,000 plastic bottles collected from Heathrow Airport.

It’s the winner of the Plastic Free Schools Competition, run by Robeco Asset Management and City to Sea, a not-for-profit organisation campaigning to stop plastic pollution. Kiera was inspired to enter the competition because of her concern about how much the world is overrun by plastic and the damage that it’s doing to the oceans, rivers and creatures in them.

The sculpture is of an angler fish, a deep-sea creature where most plastic pollution is found, and was chosen by Kiera to highlight the shocking damage being done to the oceans. It was selected from more than 20 entries, and it won £1,000 for Teddington School. The prize will go towards an environmental project chosen by the school community.
