Elegant chandeliers Made From Reclaimed Bicycle Chains

by Yasha Wallin

October 9, 2012


Chandeliers are normally associated with wealth, power, and influence. But when they are created from discarded bike partsthose invisible, disposable pieces that aren't normally thought of at allit creates another, third meaning. And by giving old materials a new function or second life, it lessons the amount of waste we as humans produce. The artist hopes her inspired sculptures will spark dialogue and influence our future direction as a society.
