Wandering through Bike shops and local junk yards for collecting old bike parts, LA based artist Carolina Fontoura Alzaga has been creating beautiful artwork using them since 2007.Drawing inspiration from Victorian era chandeliers, DIY and Bike Culture the artist has created a beautiful series of chandeliers known as ‘Connect’ made from scrap bicycle parts, cassettes, wheels and rims. It took about four to six weeks for the completion of these stunning pieces of artwork which includes collecting and sourcing of the material required.
The artist says the process is long and toilsome from sourcing, collecting and cleaning the old bike parts to give perfect look to each chandelier by hand as very little welding goes in the making.
Carolina’s beautiful artwork is on sale, at her Etsy shop, Facaro with prices ranging from $125 to $4,200.
