This is a freeform octopus sitting on another piece that is also white. I really liked how he worked the surface of the glass on its body to make it appear Alive and charged with energy.

Will be looking forward to seeing them, Dave! In the meantime, I have posted another Christmas ornament for you to see:

This was a small piece in proportion to alot of the display-maybe 10-12" across. Sort of a filler thing. Some of his pieces in this display and other displays are 3-4ft across-just individual pieces. Some of the spheres in and around the boats and in this display were easily 2 ft. in diameter and perfect exact spheres with their designs and overlays. A few more photos will be coming tonight.

What was the size of the octopus? About? I am wondering how he creates these huge pieces. I was at the glass blowing shop at Tacoma's Glass Museum. Seeing the guys doing even the small stuff looked like a pretty hard job! Amazing. Thanks.

You're absolutely right, warbler. When I solved and magnified, the texture and tension were very evident. Yet another stunningly example of his great artistry. I envy you your visit...this is very high on my bucket list! Thanks again, Michelle
