Perhaps that was photographer and graphic designer Mandy Barker’s inspiration.

But her creation uses material debris found in the sea, not glass.

It’s part of her art series ‘SOUP’ which seeks to raise awareness of the mass accumulation of plastic in the world’s oceans. Mandy has even been nominated twice for the Prix Pictet Award, which is the world’s leading photographic award in sustainability.

I’ve learned a couple of things I didn’t know, so I’d say her artwork is doing the trick.
