There's something addictive about tiny Ferris wheels, but this one is a murky contradiction. I wanted to explore the idea of having a Ferris wheel made at the bottom of the sea. What would you use for parts? Who would keep it running?

While still working on this piece, I showed the unfinished sculpture to a friend who assumed the octopus was up to no good, dismantling the wheel. I think the word she used was "sabotage." That interpretation had never occurred to me. So I took another look at the tentacles, gripping a small wrench, and the title of the piece became clear:

The Depths of Repair.

This is a good-guy octopus, keeping things running tightly down below. No doubt.

Ferris wheel sculpture made out of re-purposed jewelry, wire, seashore shells and charms, including ship's wheel and anchor. Engraved brass plate on base. Four inch glass globe, liquid filled. This liquid-filled globe has very light copper and glittering green confetti dust when shaken.

One of a kind sculpture in a glass globe, signed by the artist.

Dimensions: The glass globe is 4 inches in diameter, the interior sculpture is approximately 2.75 inches tall, but appears larger due to magnification of liquid and glass. From base to top of glass globe is between 5" and 5.75" tall.

Shipping note: Prices shown are for lower 48 states. Please contact shop if you would like shipping quotes for Hawaii and Alaska. Waterglobes are shipped via UPS due to US Postal regulations prohibiting mailing liquid-filled items.
