Originally created for the 2014 Northern Spark dusk-till-dawn art festival in Minneapolis, the GLASSICLES were a series of sculptural art glass light installations crafted from repurposed bottles and drinking devices.
The chandelier-like designs consisted of a steel framework, reclaimed bottles and glassware held in place by a combination of outdoor-friendly glazing techniques, metal and rubber mounts.
As organized by Soo Visual Arts Center, the Glassicles were slated to be hung at the Weisman Art Museum, Loring Corners, and Made Here’s “Parklot” by the Orpheum during the festival.

This installation was created entirely out of 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey bottles in appreciation for the company's sponsorship.
Originally intended to be hung in the alley at Loring Corners, the piece had to be installed indoors during the festival instead due to inclement weather conditions.
This whimsical array of martini glasses spiraling on blood-red leaded glass found its permanent home after the festival at a Hennepin Theatre Trust site: the New Century Theatre in downtown Minneapolis.
