Dale Chihuly at Anthropologie?



Dale Chihuly's 30 ft. high blown glass chandelier in the main entrance of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.


Anthropologie's version is made from recycled plastic bottles.


The stylists at Anthro never cease to amaze with their limitless creativity.

  

Each store hand picks a team of stylists who are given creative license to  come up with their unique vision.

 

This store is located on Fourth Street in Berkeley, California.

How's your Anthropologie looking?

That is quite the creative thinking and however did they find plastic in those colours? Goes to show you....anything is possible if you think about it enough. Fun post.

Terri,so you tested Violet on the quiz, I think the definition describes you perfectly. Especially the honest in relationships part. Fun test huh?

Terri, I am soooo behind on my blogging, but I was thrilled to see your post on Chihuly! I so love his work! There are magnificent displays at the Indianapolis Children's Museum, so I get my fix whenever I go to that laboratory of germs...at least it has the beautiful glass! I've also seen his work at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Uh-mazing! xo kitty

I have not seen this! What a wonderful idea. I have a small piece made by someone who trained at Corning. Anthropologie always sets the bar in decorating.

Really pretty. I love the colors. Did you paint the colors or use colored plastic bottles? If you painted them, what kind of paint did you use? I am really trying to educate myself how to color platics, but I am just not sure what kind of paint to use.
