I believe this wood was a piece of an old barrel; it still has a numerical code on one side. Looking closely, you can even see old traces of paint. I turned it over and over in my hands, I cleaned it, treated it with woodworm and compactor glue on the back, where it was a little “tender.” I looked at it vertically, then horizontally … I left it leaning in a corner for a while. One morning, when I arrived in the laboratory (studio), and I saw it, a Pink Octopus was being born and was stretching its tentacles on the wood!

The mosaic was made using the direct technique on a wood obtained from an old barrel.

Materials: Venetian beige gold, mixed venetian smalti, rubber, raku ceramic.
