The Modern & Contemporary Design Blog highlighted a handful of light sculptures in a recent post.  I am totally mesmerized by two of them.  One being the chandelier-style sculpture shown above made with vintage glassware from Canada.  What a piece of nostaligia and art all rolled into one.

The other is this piece that seems to incorporate scientific glass blowing with various other elements worked in a torch.  Although I don’t think these pieces are used in a scientific manner, it is interesting to see how that component is mixed with neon tubing.

Be sure to follow the link to MoCo above to see other light sculptures and get the links to the individual artists.

    Heh heh heh. I think some of those were ours too. I’d love to have some of those old glass drink ware back!
