First Grade Chihuly Threads
First grade students collaborated to emulate the work of Dale Chihuly, an American glass sculptor. Chihuly took glass blowing to the next level, creating enormous works in vibrant colors including sculptures, chandeliers, and window decoration. His work is easily identifiable for the long organic shapes and fluted disks. Students mimicked Chihuly’s festive designs by coloring plastic film with vibrant colors. The plastic sheets were melted into organic forms and students attached additional plastic pieces, reminiscent of Chihuly’s elongated ceiling installations.
