Oslo the Octopus

Metal Wall Sculpture

Whimsical and strong, this Octopus is a statement piece. It is handmade in rural Pennsylvania with reclaimed metal. The pattern is drawn is drawn on the metal with soapstone, cut with a hand-held plasma cutter, hand-shaped and arc welded together. Each piece will have it's own subtle differences; they are cut, hammered and built by hand.

The color is hand-painted with milk paint, giving the piece a naturally uneven and textured finish. A clear finish is applied to the entire piece. This can easily be hung with a nail or screw.
