Mondo Pena’s life sized octopus was made from copper scraps left over from his job
(PRWEB UK) 20 May 2013
It was reported in times-series.co.uk that 48-year-old, full-time plumber Mondo Pena’s life-sized octopus was made from copper scraps left over from his job. The former San Franciscan’s work also includes a 15-foot copper giraffe, a shark and a giant eel, and he completes his sculptures using a welding torch. What started out as a hobby for the father of two after he was badly injured in a car crash in 1994 has transformed into an incredible talent that has taken over his garden.

“It’s great to see that these scrap pieces are being put to good use. Copper is an extremely valuable metal, as well as being soft and malleable, making it perfect for sculpting. It’s encouraging to see the creative talents of a fellow plumber being recognised.”
