Bria was so intrigued by all the sculptures we saw on our recent trip to Indianapolis, especially the large glass sculpture in the middle of the Children's Museum. The sculpture, created by Dale Chihuly and entitled "Fireworks of Glass," is 43 feet tall rising up 3 stories in the museum. In the basement you can see the ceiling of glass underneath it.
You can also create your own masterpiece using their plastic pieces. Bria even had all the kids working on one piece for a while.
I bought a few packages and went home to do some cutting. Using my animal nail clippers I cut each straw into 4 or 5 pieces.
I did save a couple for the girls to use, but really, who wants to clean these things ever!
The girls had a good time building and rebuilding their sculptures. They tried sculptures of all one shape or all one color, but they always ended up mixed together.
So there are our Chihuly Inspired "Glass" Sculptures. Aren't they pretty! We are thinking of making them permanent by using the oven bake clay, baking it without the straws in it (just the holes), and then adding the straws!
