In early 2021, I got a custom order to put an octopus, turtle and starfish on an ocean blue platter. This is something that I have always wanted to do, but I wasn’t sure if it would work. So when I got the request, I told my client that I would give it a try.
i added each creature to platter hot, so that it would melt into the glass and look more life-like. The octopus is the heaviest creature, so it pulls the glass towards the center.
Cobalt blue spirals surround the octopus with a dichroic starfish and barnacle turtle trying to escape it’s tentacles.
