Octopus, Seahorse and Sea Turtle Wall Art, Stained Glass and Seashell Mosaic Sea Creatures

octopus shell art
Hi All!
In addition to being in full swing mermaid season, I've been
busy creating other sea creature pieces this summer.

This giant 4 ft octopus is made with the same body style of my 
mosaic octopus, but covered in shells instead of stained glass.

I used round mother of pearl donut beads for his "suckers".

Every square inch of him is covered in a mixture of 
beautiful seashells, barnacles and coral pieces.

This octopus would look incredible in a beach house, bathroom or anywhere
in the home.

large seahorse shell mosaic wall art
I made a large 4 ft seahorse in the same 
seashell "mosaic" style.

The seahorse body has huge white scallop shells with a mix of other shells. 

I tried to keep most of the shells in the white family on this piece
along with iridescent mother of pearl pieces...very pretty.

Here he is on the wall for an idea of scale.

His companion is a 3ft sea turtle shell mosaic.

I used wonderful natural cockle shells on his back.

large stained glass sea turtle art
This stained glass mosaic sea turtle was something I made 
a while back and realized I never posted about him.

I cut the shape out of wood and applied the hand cut
stained glass in shades of green.

I've made 3 more of the stained glass mosaic octopuses...

After making these last two, I wanted to make a 
different style of octopus and came up with this version..

Lots of swirling tentacles on this octopus.

I tried to give the illusion of dimension with the tentacles 
crossing each other

octopus beach art mosaic
I used the same color glass in a cool blue/green mix.

He's pretty big, quite the statement!

Just like the other pieces, I drew out my own design, cut
him out of wood then applied the glass and grout.

You can check him out and all the other pieces in my
Etsy shop or visit me on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest too.

That's all for today...see you next time!

  1. Beautiful. You have inspired me to get back into doing stained glass and I love your "sea" creatures as my home is coastal. Thank you.

  2. I love your designs. What did you put the seashells on. Did you use a piece of board?
