An octopus table: a sure conversation starter!
Isaac Krauss has built an incredibly detailed and beautiful octopus table out of bronze. The idea for the sculpture started back in high-school while he was working with ceramics but was put on the back burner due to limitations of the studio he was working in at the time. The idea resurfaced when he took a bronze class a couple years later.
The most difficult aspect of this project, according to Krauss, was the detailed suction cups and applying them to the octopuses eight arms. For this, a close friend of his helped him out and also assisted in carrying through with the project till its completion. Overall, it took 1500 hours of work and $5000 to create this marvelous piece of art.
