Celebrate World Octopus Day with this fanciful chandelier by Maria Grazia Rosin and acclaimed glass sculptor Pino Signoretto! With its waving arms, murky colors, and staring eyes, the octopus evokes the mysterious depths of the ocean. This subject is perfect for Venice, a city long associated with both glass and the sea.
