Plastic and Light at the Museum of Glass



I went down to the Museum of Glass in Tacoma today to hang out with Barbara DePirro who is an artist in residence there this month and next. She's doing cool things with used plastic milk cartons and other everyday things we discard.










This picture was just rolled up paper against the neat orange wall they have in the studio at the museum.

Barbara's website is here: http://www.depirro.com
She is taking recycled art to a new level. She also crochets baskets and purses from recycled plastic trashbags.
