Unique Art Glass ‘Octopus’ By Jan Falta
Octopus is a unique art glass sculpture. A blue transparent smooth glass open bowl sits perfectly within a larger opaque glass bowl. Falta’s signature incisions are crisscrossed around the external bowl, with an added design of an octopus’s tentacles. These tentacles stretch around the glass reaching for the opening. The colours and tone of the inner bowl, create a real feel of the dark ocean bed.
A subtle moody piece, that will sit well in any space.
