Cast Iron Cephalopod Sculpture / citizenobjects

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 — via Etsy
