Octopus Mosaic Wall Art, Large 4 ft Stained Glass Mosaic Octopus

large blue green mosaic octopus
Update June 2017
I'm no longer making this exact style of octopus but visit
my new shop featuring my coastal art mosaics to see the latest version.

My latest mosaic piece... a big, giant octopus.
He's actually a little over 4 feet wide but very lightweight.
He got in my head and I just had to make him.

I got on a octopus kick after I added this octopus Christmas stocking
to my other sea life stockings.

I paired him with a coordinating sea coral painting.

I worked on him off and on over a few weeks while working
on other orders.

 When I spotted these mother of pearl round beads
at the craft store, I knew they would be perfect for the "suckers".

I love how they look.

Here's how they look after they were grouted.
I bought two different sizes of them and cut some of them in half

I used a beautiful blue/green stained glass with a darker
blue for accent on the arms and dark gray grout.

All those arms and edges were definitely a challenge to mosaic and grout!

I do love how he turned out.
Thanks for checking out all my octopus pics.

  1. Hi Lucy!!! I love all your mosaics. Can I ask if you cut all your wood yourself? Is it possible to but substrates from you?

  2. Elizabeth, yes, I cut them myself, on this one I used a Rotozip saw, you can use a jigsaw but the rotozip just makes it easier. Email me at Lucy@LucyDesignsOnline if you more questions. thank you!
