Sketches of diatoms on soluble starch, mounted on pins in water-filled petri dishes. This pic shows work a few weeks into exhibit, with some water evaporated from dishes.

Diatoms are single-celled algae, found in water and wet environments, and are one of the most significant groups of organisms on earth. Diatoms probably account for 20% of global photosynthetic fixation of carbon.
