The octopus measures approximately 16" square, and he's made from a type of glass called "True Dichroic", which is made by Youghiogheny Glass in Connellsville, PA. The cool thing about the "true dichro" is that is has a luminescence to it that transcends the look of normal stained glass. He is, of course, a one-of-a-kind piece, although I have made several octopi from the pattern (called a "cartoon" within the stained glass industry) I drew up a few years ago.

The background glass is one of my favorite green and blue combinations that exists in the world of stained glass sheets. The wooden frame is poplar, which has been sealed with 3 coats of polyurethane. The frame features a hanging hook at each of the two top corners.

He's been built in the traditional way, using lead came, just like in church windows. (In case you're freaking out about the lead, don't lick it, and you'll be fine.) You can read a little more about the process of lead work here.
