It would be too much of a shock to the system if the octopus motif were to figure no more in work from Adam Wallacavage, who specializes in chandeliers that put their tentacles to work. However, as the antlers and skull of an elk may attest, Wallacavage's latest series, entitled Dreamhome Heartaches, is made up of smaller lamps than usual; handy for when the stage for drama is simply not as wide. The pieces are of hand-sculpted epoxy clay or cast plaster, but for "his signature look, Wallacavage adds a thick glaze of secret sauce, producing a vibrant shimmering finish."
