The Artist That Transforms Trash Into Treasure

They have always said that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Artist Kathleen Plate has definitely taken that to heart. Partnering with Coca Cola and Chick-Fil-A, she has taken the iconic classic coke bottle and used its design to influence her work on chandeliers.

The classic bottle was born more than a century ago, on November 16th, 1915. This classic design is still an integral part of Coca Cola’s marketing. Now, it’s being reinvented by a talented artist who specializes in glassworks. Kathleen takes us behind the scenes to see the process of how she creates her chandeliers.
 
They are a wonderful and unique blend of old and new; traditional but with a modern twist. A rather surprising amount of work and planning goes into something so seemingly austere and simple at first glance. It hides a story of artistic expression through the lens of a universally iconic image.
