Ancient deep sea divers- the nautilus has firmly imprinted itself in the human psyche. This sculpture titled 'Cephalopod' takes direct inspiration from these amazingly graceful creatures.

This piece marries found object and handmade castings beautifully. It's body is an old cast iron blower housing; the 'eyes' are cast bronze (cast from original waxes). The tentacles are forged steel square nails, peeking out from it's 'beak', which are unique cast iron pieces.

The base that it rests on is a mirror polished fire alarm bell, and it does ring if you tap it!
The whole piece is chemically patinized- no paint.
Piece measures 16x9x8
