General Notes

This kind of artwork could also be listed under Experiential arts > Sculpture, since it fits there as well. I only chose this category under Decorative arts because there is a special subsection for "glass". It's a fascinating piece of perceptual design.

Description

A tour de force of glass-making in the form of a complex composition of limbs and head of a classic octopus, in clear glass.

Emotional Sum or Sense-of-life

Playful.
