Two Ravens Studios recently cast an inverted octopus titled “Nocturne,” for artist Mark Calderon. The inspiration for this artwork evolved from a lifelong fascination with oceanic life forms and the ocean’s increasing number of endangered species. The juxtaposition of the wildly flailing arms and perfectly still head draws a perfect parallel to the delicate balance of the environment verse the impact of human manipulation of the natural world. In addition to creating this piece for a collector of his work, Mark Calderon recently created a three-foot cross to hang in the lobby of Seattle University. Two Ravens Studios was happy to help Mark complete this commissioned artwork with his signature black patina.
