Bubble Chandelier Made With Sixty Plastic Bottles Shines Bright by

Shaun Kasperbauer's "Bubble Chandelier" was inspired by the playfully buoyant shape of bubbles. Its body is constructed of two-liter soda bottles, and the shadows it casts mimic the cell-like shape of his soapy muse. The bottles are hand assembled using small bolts and post-consumer waste - each chandelier upcycles sixty plastic bottles. The resulting piece emphasizes the bubbly beauty of materials that are commonly thought to be mundane.

    Not only a creative work of art, but an extremely important lesson on how to be ‘green’. Great job, Shaun!
