Dreaming of Joy installation by Ran Hwang: Made of thousands of red buttons each secured by a pin to a wooden panel, the artist's painstaking execution is akin to a monk practicing Zen. The piece was only complete when the bird was surrounded by a 'cage'.
Fun project to do with the kids! Melted bead suncatchers - *Layer cheap plastic beads in cake pans (no lining required), melt at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Let cool & then flip them out. Drill a hole in it to make it a suncatcher.
