Octopus Bottle Stopper

Cast bronze / patina
6" x 5" x 6"

This cast bronze Octopus bottle stopper was created for a specific exhibition put on by the Wood Turning Center called "The Art of Opening: Bottles & Their Toppers". After receiving all the cork screws and stoppers, the Center teamed up with the Wheaton Arts Cultural Center in Millville, NJ and had local glass artists blow one-of-a-kind glass vessels for each piece. See the piece as shown in the exhibition below. Check out to see other pieces in the online gallery.
