Pop Bottle Chandeliers

My students and the students at Ecole Victoria School, through a grant from the Sask Arts Board, are working on pop bottle chandeliers, inspired by the art of Dale Chihuly.  I am doing an "Artist in the Schools" project that partners students with the Nuit Blanche - Saskatoon Event that is happening September 30 in Saskatoon. We are making as many pop bottle chandeliers as we can. At a recent preview event we were able to show off the first of our projects.

It takes many hours and many bottles to create a piece but when they are in the lights they are spectacular.


Komodo Dragon Cut Out Boards - Saskatoon Zoo

For this project we partnered with the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo and created cut out boards for the new Komodo Dragon Exhibit. Super fun project. Thank you to all the students that spent their break times, weekends, before and after school to complete the project for our deadine.
