I couldn’t choose which link to post…so have a bunch!
What those dead bird holiday cards I posted the other day actually mean.
I’ve never done a theme tree because I tend to decorate with the handmade ornaments I’ve made every year since nursery school, but a “sea” tree could probably look spectacular.
There are a ton of excellent jellyfish ornaments out there (something about the delicate tentacles really lends itself to gorgeous craftsmanship).
They range from incredibly intricate handmade creations to less complex mass produced versions, and use a variety of materials (glass, shells, plastic, crochet, beads…) but they’re all rather charming in their own right.
(Apologies for not citing each image source, but hand pain does not allow. Three cheers for Google image reverse search!)
As a response to his artist friends insulting the trusty old ballpoint pen, Raymond Cicin collected their discarded ones and drew (on and off, over the course of a year), a 62″x64″ ballpoint octopus.
The piece is heavily inspired by the greatest marine illustrator of all time, Ernst Haeckel.
This sculpture has been showing up everywhere (in my circle of sources, anyway)…for good reason. Who wouldn’t love a 1938 Underwood typewriter bursting with sculpted bronze tentacles?
I don’t understand a word of the text, but I just browsed the entire collection of handmade creature bags by Atelier Iwakiri.
These could be wonderful conversation pieces for the shy and/or introverted to carry around (yes, my mind went there because I am terrible at initiating conversation with strangers. But once I begin talking, I’m fine).
