High Tide.

I came across this incredible Tide Chandelier while checking out Casa Sugar. Created by Stuart Haygarth, this gorgeous and enormous fixture is actually quite trashy, composed entirely of man-made debris that washed up on a stretch of Kent, England's coastline, which Haygarth had been collecting for years. To read a bit more about this modern wonder, wander over to Casa Sugar.

This looks fabulous ! I love it . It reminds me of the work of Gerda Steiner , in a way . Makes me feel like crafting something (would be-...)similar for my house !

Wow...really beautiful and kinda sad. I guess its a certain twist on reduce, reuse, recycle. Fantastic that he could produce such amazing results.

Fantastic! I actually looked at his website earlier today and he has made amazing lamps from all kinds of things...

So beautiful! I'm such a gleaner and I always seem to pick up stuff like this- I never thought about making it into anything ascfabulous as this!

Mixed feelings here. Wonderful (what a colorful and interesting chandelier) and terrible (this is junk found on a beach!) at the same time.

wow. i am amazed at the creativity of some people. it's one thing to see rows of pretty things in a shop and think oh you can create something... but to see potential and beauty in debris... wow.

I almost (almost!) would wish that a lil sand crab would pop out at night to switch the light off.. but that would be too spooky for some :)

I am so sorry about your beloved Cooper, I lost my girl doggy Pippin who was with me for 17 years. I understand your sorrow but wanted to post a comment here because I was so cheered by this funny thing I wanted to thank you and also send you a hug. You are going through pain now but you are also cheering a lot of people. I am glad Google made you a "BON" because then you are making that many more people happy. Hope that made sense, hope all the happy visitors are like hugs for you in this sad time.
*hug*
