Picture of the Day: "Blue Octopus"

"Blue Octopus" by Matt Entenmann, torch worked borosilicate glass.
This octopus is some really amazing glasswork. Just look at that eye!

  1. Glass just fascinates me. I mean, its a dangerous material to work with, and yet comes out so fragile. And I'm in awe of artists like Dale Chihuly who use color and shape to make glass into something so much more than a vase or something to drink out of.

    And yes, that eye is superb! Any idea how he got it so perfect?

  2. I have not been able to find out any more info on this artist's work except for more examples of his glass pieces. He is from Ashland, Oregon and he exhibits in Blue Heron Gallery and Threyda. He is on Facebook, but his page is personal rather than commercial, so honestly I couldn't tell you.
