Whats Kraken? Name is Jimi. Thanks for finding me. Im a wandering glass artist from Santa Cruz, California. I strive to implement my own glass designs inspired from traveling the ambigious. Love to inspire people to do what they love, regardless of societies ridicule. Step over those lines drawn, they are imaginary. :)

Kraken (/ˈkreɪkən/ or /ˈkrɑːkən/)
Krakens are large legendary sea monsters of the deep, described as octopus like creatures.
There is a story behind the Kraken pieces. Not many have picked up on the theme that will run through my book of solitary mobile travel while "working". Restless, moving there locations regularly and watching the busy reef from their sanctuary.. octopus are solitary creatures. Introversion is not being "shy" just a way to gather ones energy from solitude then their surroundings. They are the guardians of Oceans. :)
Art Value Function
The Wicked Koin. A stepping stone in my quest to retain value for the future secondary market. Using digital certificate technology of the blockchain, it combines transparency and anonymity. In addition, it creates a clear record of the creator and previous ownership. Using a combination of tangible and the digital worlds. A online Exchange will soon bring liquidity, to provide my collectors with a tradable tangible asset. Another function besides using for artworks.

Aluminum (Charity based)
One of the main reasons Whats Kraken? It was a idea to bring another function of the Krakens, give back. 100% profits of the Aluminum Wicked Koin (novelty) will go to Coral Restoration and Ocean Conservation. Art with a purpose. :)
