Stentor is a genus of beautiful, trumpet-shaped ciliates that is common in freshwater. They can be large enough to see without magnification. They are filter feeders, but some species, including the one pictured here, can also form a symbiotic relationship with algae, which gives them a green colour. Stentor uses the fringe of cilia around the mouth opening to create a swirling vortex in the water, which brings food particles into the funnel-like mouth.
I like to imagine how microscopic creatures might look if we could see them in their natural habitats, and view them as the amazing wildlife that they are. The microscopic world is truly fantastic and offers a lot of inspiration for fantasy themes, which you will see in some of my more playful work like the hookah-smoking tardigrade inspired by the caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland. I hope my art can help bring us a little bit closer to the mysterious world of microbiology that is the foundation for all our precious ecosystems.
