#PEMfromhome \\ Drop-In Art Activities
Plastic bottle chandelier
Explore some of PEM’s inspiring collections from the comfort of your own home at pem.org. Come take a look around one of our permanent galleries, Fashion and Design. There you’ll find a beautiful yellow and gold chandelier by Dale Chihuly, an American sculptor who creates wonders out of glass that are often inspired by nature. Chihuly’s chandeliers are constructed from hundreds of individually blown glass pieces that he combines to make intricate compositions. These chandeliers interact with light and space and have a dialogue with the natural forms in their environment. What natural forms do the shapes in this chandelier remind you of? In this project, you will be creating your own Chihuly nature-inspired hanging chandelier out of plastic recyclables!
