Knowing my love of all things octopi, one of my readers alerted me to the work of Adam Wallacavage.  Thanks to Elisa Leone of Argus-Bottom-View_72dpi

I asked Adam a little about his work via e-mail:

How are the pieces made?
I sculpt them in clay, then make molds and then cast the tentacles in plaster. 

And why Octopi or such a sea theme?

I just like using the tentacle form because there is so much I can do with it. When I think up what I want to do next, I'll do it. I want the inspiration to come to me naturally so I try not to think to hard about what I want to do next. 

One of these Chandeliers or Candelabras is definitely on my wish list…And, Adam does custom work too!

Look at more of Adam's work here at his gallery link listed below, or visit his website and check out his blog too:

    Those are incredible! You should check out a seller on Etsy called OctopusMe, who sells great octopus-inspired jewelry.

    The green and white ones are my favorites! The white looks especially striking against the blue walls.
