All-vertebrate Kraken
2018

This piece was made in collaboration with Wicked Glass. Wicked blew and sculpted the kraken with my color prep. I then carved into the layers of glass to create the kraken's skeleton. Since squid and octopi are invertebrates, I chose to give this kraken a skeleton. Each of the tentacles are carved as is they were spines. I placed the ribcage in the mantle, and I added a bearded sailor skeleton in the belly of the kraken. I also chose to include the kraken's circulatory system, with the three hearts as well as the feather-like gills, which frame the sides of the skull.
