Portland Craftsman Makes Spectacular Stained Glass Octopus Chandeliers

Mason Parker owner of Mason’s Creations in Portland, Oregon has created an amazing stained glass octopus chandelier. This incredible chandelier is made by a combination of fused and stained glass techniques. It will fit inside a roughly 5′ spherical space, ideally near a stairwell in a big living room as the customer in the lower photo has.

Small Story From Mason Parker Facebook
Mason’s Creations has produced detailed renditions of Lepidoptera and a variety of other stained and fused glass pieces since it’s origins in Deerfield Massachusetts. Now based in Portland Oregon since 2007, specializes in a high quality of sea creature oriented lamps.

Before I start any significant stained glass piece I ask myself if would I be able to do justice with my abilities, to this life form that I witnessed when I was out walking or saw a picture of in a nature book.

Other times my inspiration is one that would make a good functional piece, such as an octopus made into the chandelier. This serves to make nature accessible without having to travel to a natural history museum or aquarium. And for practical purposes, immortal too.

Then I proceed to figure out how I can render it with the already vibrant colors of the glass itself and how to make the solder lines flow with its anatomy. I then use a combination of copper foil stained glass and glass fusion techniques, including using powder frit and slumping on the small components, which allows me to get finer details or 3-D effect where solder and foil are impractical.
