Blue Ringed Octopus Planter (Favorite Animal #1)

Blue Ringed Octopus Planter (Favorite Animal #1)


The Creating:

In May I did a giveaway on Instagram, to enter I asked folks to leave their favorite animal in the comment section. I got so many wonderful responses that I decided to make everyones favorites. Many of these animals will only be made once and some I plan to revisit. This cutie is one of your favorites!

Blue ringed octopus have a special place in my heart and this piece has hours of delicate sculpting and love. The planter was hand formed from a clay slab that was rolled, stretched and altered. Care was taken to construct the octopus onto the planter to keep the long, delicate arms from breaking. After being sculpted it was a long and slow drying process before the first firing. After the first firing, the piece was handprinted. Layers of paint had to be carefully applied by bush, hand and bottle. Little details of dots and even a hand sculpted starfish decorate the outside, creating a unique and truly one of a kind piece.

Note: There are small cracks on the bottom of this piece, they are not visible when in use and do not effect the structural integrity of the piece.

The Details:

  • 100% handmade, which means always unique

  • Created with food grade, non-toxic glazes

  • Measures 3.5 x 4.5 x 3.5 (inches)
