“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!

    ow did you get the paper clips to stay secure on the melted plastic?

    • 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.
