'Cephalopod' Limited edition bronze of 20 Year released - 2011
Coffee table dimensions: 16 1/2" H x 36" Round or square glass.
By adding two of 'Cephalopod' together you can make longer and larger tables.
This is the bronze 'Cephalopod' with a level glass top coffee table. It can be purchased with or without a 36" round, or square glass table top as a coffee table, or without glass as a sculpture. Place two together for a long table.
Creating this piece as a sculpture takes an amazing amount of work. Designing it free standing on just three tentacles and balancing the round glass table top on only three tentacle points of contact took months of extra design and engineering. It required a very intricate mold of the sculpture. Making the mold myself, each tentacle was molded separately from the head and mantle of the octopus just to be welded back on after being cast in bronze. The glass table top sets safely and firmly on top of three tentacle.
"I have always been fascinated with Cephalopods."
There are hundreds of cephalopod species around the world. This is my interpretation of the largest species known: Pacific Giant Octopus (Enteroctopus dofleini). Recordings show it reaches 600 lbs. At least 100 of the cephalopod species have three hearts. They are all amazing and as fluid as the oceans in which they live. They are intelligent with a highly developed brain and acute vision, and are masters of camouflage.
