Basho in Suma, Japan, 1688
|An octopus pot is a ceramic pot used to capture octopuses in Japan.
The octopus floats and dreams in his man-made prison, unaware of his impending fate.
To honor the beautiful and incredibly intelligentoctopus, I created a stained glass mosaic table top a few years ago,
using thousands of hand-nipped shards of translucent glass.
Take a look at these fabulously low-tech old photos.
