Plastic Scales

Derived from 6" plastic messenger tubes, the plastic scales were created through a method of flattening the tubes in boiling water, and were then torched on a flat surface to fuse the sides together. They were then hung on a jig and torched until the bubbles were properly articulated and carmelized. The final scales were attached using wire and placed in an aluminum frame.

  1. Saw this panel on the north curtain wall. Nice work Sara! Did you think about orienting the bottles so the curl mimicked gravity? Or was it too difficult to figure out how to support them that way?
