Under the Sea

After much awaited anticipation, we recently acquired our Octopus Pot that we commissioned from Bowen artist, Jeanette Wrenshall.

Jeanette is incredibly talented and does beautiful work, but this has exceeded our expectation in spades! The rich combination of terra cotta and sangria red topped with an animated espresso octopus are absolutely gorgeous and captures the Spanish mood perfectly. This is sure to be one of our most treasured pieces of functional art.

We are looking so forward to christening this pot with Jesee’s Pulpo Cocido (Octopus Stew) along with some crusty bread and a bottle of Vinho Verde.
