Residency 2011: “Chihuly” Chandelier

The staff colored lovely designs on 200 plates donated to us by the Chinet company. Then they were melted in a toaster oven. They’re fixed on to a hanging planter with paperclips!

  1. Hello Iheartart,
    I was wondering on a similar note,, Baskets, chandeliers, cylinders, floats, Ikebana, Macchia, Persians, Putti, Sea forms, Soft cylinders, stumps, or Venetians?

    Mine is chandeliers because I think it’s awesome how he can draw them first and then take the drawing and convert it into this beautiful sculpture.
    Good Job!

    1. right when I got them out of the toaster oven, I took a knife to the soft plastic and poked a hole in it. If the plastic hardened to quick or the hole didn’t work, I went back with a dremel drill and made a hole for the clip.
