A Little Downtime
Chiminea All Ablaze
Wonder if that’s how Chihuly got started (I’ve seen pieces of his work that look almost exactly like that, but glass).
Good eye! His works were the inspiration behind this piece.
Daryl, I was thinking the same thing! That’s an impressive chandelier.
I’ve seen something like this before and you totally captured how beautiful they are. Hi Jeff, I’ve been away for a while now–glad I came back. I love your pictures. 🙂
Did you create the Soda Bottle Chandelier? It must have taken a while to collect them all. What a great and inspiring way to reuse, recycle and repurpose! Well done and bravo!
It was my lovely wife’s project. Thanks! She’s amazing 🙂
She is indeed! Please kindly tell your other significant half that SoundEagle reckons so, Jeff, and that you have the eyes and heart to appreciate and showcase her creativity.
Yes, she’s one of the most amazingly talented artists I’ve ever met. Not to mention a cool person! You are a blessed man.
Can I ask how this was suspended in midair? This is so creative.
They used metal bars to attach the whole thing to the rafters. Thanks 🙂 I’ll pass along the compliment!
This is so colorful.
Calling it a chandelier implies there might be a light bulb in there? What size bulb can you user without worrying about melting the plastic?
There was no light bulb inside, but the florescents above cast a pretty nice glow.
I create water bottle art and would like to know what your spouse used as an armature for her piece. Wish I could attach pics of a few of my pieces.
She used chicken wire and hula hoops 🙂
It must be huge!! Very clever. Chicken wire is a pain to work with….give her a pat on the back from me!

Such a neat project. Amazed every time I see it!
I did something very similar to this when I was student teaching in 2011. The kids loved doing it and I loved seeing how proud they were when they would walk by it! http://artbait.blogspot.com/2011/07/pop-bottle-sculpture-in-detail.html
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing the link.
