It was reported in times-series.co.uk that 48 year old Mondo Pena’s life sized Ocotpus caught the attention of producers from Channel Four programme, Four Rooms. Using leftover copper scrapes, the full time plumber has also created a number of other sculptures, such as a giraffe, shark and giant eel, using his welding torch. The San Francisco born father of two took up the hobby in 1994, after a car accident rendered him badly injured and unable to work.

This particular one caught their attention and a representative shares their thoughts on the matter.
“Being soft and malleable, copper seems to be a good alloy for making sculptures. It’s also good to see the scraps of such a valuable metal put to good use. Plumbing requires a certain skill when it comes to handling metal and other materials, and it is clear that this same ability enabled Mondo to unlock his artist talents as well.”
