More Recycled Chandeliers

I have had many readers tell me they really like the chandelier from a previous post made from coffee stirrers .  So in response, I have hunted down a few more recycled chandeliers that I think are also beautiful and inspiring.

This light of pop art flowers is made from recycled soda bottle bottoms. Artist Michelle Brand says her Cascade Chandelier can be seen two ways, as a grim comment on a throw away culture or an homage to the beauty found in mass produced items. I can see this as being a fun family project when the weather outside is too cold or wet.Recycled Chandelier | KitchAnn Style

Don’t let the color fool you on this next light by Stuart Haygarth. This light is crafted from 416 disposable plastic wine glasses.  A pink fluorescent light inside creates the striking color.  If this light is too big he also makes one from 280 glasses.  I want to know who is drinking all that wine. Stuart Haygarth has made many chandeliers from found objects.

My new favorite of his is made from water bottles confiscated at the airport.  It replaces my previous favorite, the Tide chandelier, made from trash that washed up on the shores of the Kent coast line. airport | KitchAnn Style  drop-detail | KitchAnn style

For smaller lights, I admire the work of Johanna Keimeyer.  She carves up plastic bottles to create interesting and whimsical pendants.

  1. Love the web site with the falling white lights on the various artist’s works. And more importantly just love the insight of the artist’s. Keep up the great work to continue to save mother the earth.
