CREATING A CHANDELIER
The girls made paper flowers to look at the layers of the flowers. We talked about the design and colors of the chandelier.
We looked at the flower and found the strongest and best support was from the middle of the stem, so it's there we wrapped the wire.
We studied the layers of color and construction of a flower and stem. The girls choose the colors for the chandelier.
The girls looked at the different shapes of the flowers and voted on different design decisions.
The girls choose blues, greens, some purples, multi color and wanted to keep the flowers bright by adding white.
Each flower, we attached a wire and Carlos helped us attach it to the main frame. We talked about the engineering of the metal
Each flower is unique and special
We added the flowers one by one, it took a lot of flowers!
The girls were very proud of their flowers.
It takes a team to create such a big piece!
We attached all of the flowers together, all the while creating design decisions and adding more colors!
