Tentacle Door Handle by ou8nrtist2 Tentacle Door Handle by ou8nrtist2
This is a piece in FORGED STAINLESS STEEL with the suckers plug welded on (except the small ones near the tip) which were mig welded freehand.It was designed as a dramatic entrance piece (door handle ) to a restaurant. The owner of the suishi bar thought my price of $700.oo too expensive even though I offered to trade half the price in food.LOL, so I gave it to friend who appreciates it. It's perhaps relevant to note ,that not everyone is into ART or even recognizes its function and value in society. I've long ago stopped arguing with people who"don't get it"and prefer to use that energy on those that do...It does no good to flog a dead horse.

Very beautiful, I would so pay that price for when (if ever) I have a proper house to display such a great functional piece. I'm learning how upsetting it is to realize most people don't care about the effort that goes into the work one makes. It sucks, but at least you know you do great work.

It's especially difficult right now with the economy in the crapper.Nobody is buying art...

ya.... that's why most of us have to keep some lowly day job so we can support our real passion I guess. Depressing but ohwell.
