Cuttlefish Sculpture

Size: 20″ X 13″

Material: Maple burl, manzanita burl, mother of pearl, stainless steel

Method: Hand carved

Cuttlefish are closely related to octopus and squid, and they possess characteristics of both. They are capable of instant color changes. The dramatic spots and swirls in maple burl represent their striking patterning. Cuttlefish are also very intelligent. This piece gives the viewer the feeling that it is studying you as intently as you are studying it.
