Coleoidea Hypoxyphilia

This brass octopus pendant was inspired by a friend's recounting of a dream in which an octopus was crawling up her leg — the next day she woke up with a cramp in her calf — in this case the creature is trying to heave it's way up the owner's chain, grasping it and collecting it together in it's many appendages.

Each sucker carefully handcrafted...
It's available for sale on my Shapeways page, where you can also see more pictures and a video of it. I like how much detail it captured, but I think some of the legs are unnatural looking, which irks me a bit.

It was manufactured — 3D printed and then cast — by Shapeways. A chain can be woven through six of the eight legs, with the top and center two legs forming a heart shape.

Working Out the Kinks

Thanks to Collin for helping me get a domain name, some webspace, and for installing WordPress here — and for helping me work out all sorts of other html issues in the past.

I’ve managed to embed a model of a fungus that is growing on a tree stump outside my brother’s house — in the vicinity of 50,000 polygons, this model has been reduced to about a tenth of what the original model was in order save bandwidth. (Expand this post to view it.)

Next up: figuring out how to integrate Etsy listings!
