Creative Chandelier

Here is another great chandelier made out of recycled material.  This one is made by an artist named stuart haygarth , he designs projects which revolve around collection of objects that are normally overlooked and can be collected in large quantities.  Then he assembles them in a way that they are transformed into a significant piece of work such as chandeliers, installations, functional and sculptural objects.

He cut a small detail section (the base) from approximately 1800 bottles collected and placed them in a cement mixer containing sand and water.  This slightly modified the appearance of the plastic by creating a sandblasted quality which made the plastic appear like frosted glass.

What great use of the plastic bottle that would have simply ended up in the landfills!  Besides, this chandelier is so beautiful, a great coversation piece!

Hope you are having a wonderful and creative week!


  1. Fabulous idea! And they do kind of look like jelly fish!! I wish people wouldn't buy these bottles anymore.

  2. I agree… I use a water purifier, I like that better!

  3. That is simply amazing. I NEVER would have know what it was made of!

  4. What a neat idea. I am always horrified to hear how all the plastic bottles are taking over the oceans. We only use stainless steel water bottles now and we have a reverse osmosis system on our sink.

  5. So happy that you stopped by. I am following you as well can't wait to see all the inspiration that you share! Have a wonderful week!

    Warm wishes
