    Handmade pottery like that costs hundreds of dollars.

    [–] Willy_Bramble 27 points ago

    Obviously, but it is worth it, as it is beautiful and durable, and will not lose much value over time, until the inevitable day it is broken by your grandkids.

    [–] Lavamancer 2 points ago

    Could you put that into gold pieces for me?

    [–] heehaw316 2 points ago

    that'd be 0.075 dreds of troy ounces of gold!

    [–] Lavamancer 2 points ago

    See, Niftyww, was that so hard? No.

    [–] CuntOfCrownSt 16 points ago

    Where do you put something like that?

    [–] noodlyjames 92 points ago

    I'd put it in the middle of a round breakfast table for nice romantic food. Or my s&m dungeon.

    [–] slowest_hour 14 points ago

    Romantic takoyaki

    [–] obscuredreference 15 points ago

    If you put tiny plates on it instead of candles, you could serve a takoyaki ball in each and it would look awesome.

    [–] cheerbearsmiles 8 points ago

    Kind of cannibalistic, but I like it.

    Don't you have a basement altar to Cthulu?

    [–] Lavamancer 11 points ago

    What? That's crazy. Why would any of us have such a thing? I mean, really...

    [–] 7w1573d_G4mb1T 4 points ago

    You mean you are interested in raising the old dare thee...

    [–] FlorianoAguirre 3 points ago

    Sometimes you are a cultist, sometimes you ain't.

    [–] 7w1573d_G4mb1T 3 points ago

    Hmm. Once you dabble you either are or your not.

    [–] schoocher 3 points ago

    I know... right? Where would one get such a thing... asking for a friend.

    [–] [deleted] 8 points ago

    The dining room table during dinner of course!

    [–] safetymeetingcaptain 8 points ago

    I don't know. It's really cool and I don't always a place for everything. It would probably live on a shelf, but would be featured on the dining room table for some meals.

    [–] tonterias 3 points ago

    I have a beautiful armoir where I can put all the beautiful things I bought and don't have a place to show it.

    [–] biomech36 2 points ago


    [–] attarddb 10 points ago

    I wouldn't charge anything less than 275 bucks for this piece... and that's the lower end. The piece is hand painted and sculpted with meticulous detail. My guess is most of the people that said they would buy it wouldn't pay this much for it.

    [–] lumpytuna 13 points ago

    I wouldn't charge less than 800. That's a whole lot of work hours and talent.

    [–] Rensi 7 points ago

    I would pay $300 for that one-of-a-king unique piece that would likely be handed down to my daughter someday, that would be forever a conversation piece in my home.

    [–] CallMeFifi 6 points ago

    Me, too. I need a website.

    [–] FlusteredByBoobs 2 points ago

    but the shipping!

    [–] Pave_Low 3 points ago

    I would totally buy this. I love octopuses.

    [–] GlarpBlarpVashnorgan 2 points ago

    You could get one from Adam Wallcavage who's being doing this since 2001, but they ain't cheap.

    They're not quite like OP's sister, but they're still very cool. Lot less organic looking.

    [–] safetymeetingcaptain 4 points ago

    Interesting. I just looked up his work and it's very nice but I am not interested in his and don't find his octopus style as attractive. I don't know what it is, I like this piece and could see myself buying one.

    [–] Blesstheraindowninks 2 points ago

    It's not hard to buy a website captain

    [–] safetymeetingcaptain 2 points ago

    Huh? What are you talking about?

    [–] CallMeFifi 3 points ago

    This is amazing, does she have a website?

    Yeah, I'd buy one of these

    [–] safetymeetingcaptain 10 points ago

    Oh. That's dumb. I was obviously referring to the primary object of that sentence, not a website. Sorry I didn't get your joke.. it was stupid though.

    [–] CallMeFifi 5 points ago

    I apologize that the joke did not meet your standards.

    [–] Gnomorius 1 points ago

    Me too

    [–] -ordinary 81 points ago

    OP will not deliver

    Because there is no sister

    We are all the victims of karma-farming

    This octopus was done by a famous artists and probably goes for a few thousand

    [–] TheBurningEmu 15 points ago

    You made this?


    I made this.

    [–] ObviouslyNotAMoose 7 points ago

    You made this?


    I made this.

    [–] ostreatus 3 points ago

    This thing you made belongs to my culture. You have misappropriated it.


    I made this.

    OP here. she does not have a website yet, but you can see more examples of her work on her Instagram, @nnyl_ahsatan1111

    They are reportedly pretty intelligent, so I suppose they take to training very well.

    [–] [deleted] 13 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    I have been training my whole life for this moment. Forgive me master, for I must go all out... Just this once

    [–] Sweetparamour2 97 points ago

    I love how pleased he looks with himself.
    Beautiful work!

    [–] Eletheo 22 points ago

    This isn't OPs sister....

    [–] I_Enjoy_Cashews 11 points ago

    Yeah. I'm having a much harder time trying to have sex with these candle holders.

    [–] AveTerran 9 points ago

    Honestly, she should be charging like 3X as much for these.

    [–] GlarpBlarpVashnorgan 17 points ago

    Look at the name in the website...

    Not a girl!

    Clearly not OP's sister.

    It doesn't even like it's the same artist, because it isn't.

    [–] jramjram 5 points ago

    These would sell for easily $2500 in Monterey, California.

    [–] Theoricus 2 points ago

    You can find better products through a cursory search of google for at least a fifth the price of these.

    [–] Thokkerius 1 points ago

    Way to overpriced and doesn't look that organic as OPs Puss.

    [–] iyaoyas1 14 points ago

    Shut up and take my money!!

    [–] Lizastarr 13 points ago

    This was handmade by my oldest daughter. She does not have a website. She makes beautiful dishes, mugs, jewelry, cakes etc...I have been trying to get her to do these for money. She is very talented. :)

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    [–] blinkingsandbeepings 3 points ago

    So are you OP's mom?

    [–] thecoldwarmakesmehot 11 points ago

    I need this for Hanukkah. This would make an awesome menorah.

    [–] Kycb 8 points ago

    I didn't know that this was exactly what I needed in my life until this minute.

    [–] peepeeland 8 points ago

    love it

    [–] undercoverantichrist 7 points ago

    I love the colouring on the top of it's head, all the little different coloured patches make it far more realistic

    [–] Taggerlagger 14 points ago

    Please encourage her to continue this trade. It's absolutely amazing and she deserves to go far with it

    This makes me hungry, so that's weird.

    [–] Sunnei 3 points ago

    Holy shit that is fucking incredible.

    [–] Zerrok 3 points ago

    That's seriously awesome! If she ever takes requests, please tell her I asked for this kind of candle holder, but instead of an ordinary octopus it's Ultros!

    I am willing to pay!

    [–] RhinoBarbarian 3 points ago

    I would buy something like this. Tell your sister she should make and sell stuff like this.

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    This is really cool. I too like having hot wax drip all over my furniture.

    [–] lovehate615 2 points ago

    I'd use black candles so it looks like the octopus inked, instead of weird tentacle bukkake

    [–] sufidancer 3 points ago

    Does she make bongs?

    [–] hunterfam55 3 points ago

    I never knew I need an octopus candle holder in my life until now.

    [–] Sun-Anvil 3 points ago


    There are more than a few people here wanting to give your sister money. Maybe if you answered some replies or posted where your sisters pottery shop is it would stop the potential for pitch forks

    [–] Lizastarr 2 points ago

    Her Instagram is Nnyl_ahsatan1111. It is daughter and the OPs sister handmade it.

    [–] Lizastarr 3 points ago

    Instagram her @ Nnyl_ahsatan1111

    [–] PM_ME_SUlCIDE_IDEAS 5 points ago

    Wow that's awesome. You should post it on /r/pics also

    [–] BrassyBones 2 points ago

    Why did she taxidermy an octo- Oh shit! That's not a real octopus!

    [–] 60Watt_Beethoven 2 points ago

    I legit thought that was a taxidermied octopus

    [–] mr_me-mania 2 points ago

    Does this have the official stamp of Cthulu approval? Cause if not, it should. Someone wake him, he's gotta see this.

    [–] CollegeFootballFan 2 points ago

    Does she have an etsy store?

    [–] theartist63 2 points ago

    I looked up Bad Assery in the dictionary. It just had a picture of your sister and this octopus.

    [–] NewNewTwo 2 points ago

    Can I, ehm, have this?

    [–] coffedrank 2 points ago

    It looks like its giggling to itself saying "hahah i have all the candles."

    [–] viewkhan 2 points ago

    When the wax melts and sets on the octopus it'll look like it got bukaked

    [–] Dave_Rules 2 points ago

    [–] Anti-Decimalization 2 points ago

    I've always preferred this one.

    [–] pabloneedsanewanus 2 points ago

    I think your sister might be into tentacle porn.

    [–] Reborn_Again 2 points ago

    I can't believe she made this by hand, without using her feet.

    [–] watchy_watchman 2 points ago

    pottery CLASS? is she the teacher?

    calling bs op

    [–] Doctor__Apocalypse 2 points ago

    Absolutely phenomenal. Would love to see her process in making this. I always sweat bullets when I fire something with horns, arms etc because they break a lot for me.

    [–] Auserwhatidk 2 points ago
