'bloom' - Museum of Glass

'bloom'    Barbara De Pirro

a space to float, to daydream
an umbrella of whimsy
radiating light & a flush of color
pollinating creativity and ingenuity
awakening a childlike sense
of wonder, awareness and awe

Museum of Glass

This sculptural installation and its companion window pieces are created using recycled & re-imagined plastics.

Individual petals created using recycled plastic bags & milk jugs cut into form then wired to armature. Spirals & tendrils created from recycled plastic lids, place mats & file folders.

Color sheets created by splicing together recycled plastic product packaging & labels. The individual dotz were then cut from these and adhered to individual petals.
