Chihuly Tower








This idea came from Art with Mr. E! The 5th graders studied Dale Chihuly and created a collaborative tower in his style. They each brought in a water bottle, wrapped it w/tissue paper and gluey water. They also each made a paper sculpture. My husband and father made the stand and we just stuck our art into the holes from the chicken wire! It turned out great! We get many complements from visitors as it is placed at the front entrance of school!

amazing glass blowing site!
