Add a taste of the bayou to your landscape with this Hand Painted Dragonfly Recycled Bottle Wind Chime. Artist Amalia Flaisher gives new life to old wine bottles, turning them into works of art for the eyes and ears. Individually hand-painted and signed by the artist, each of these wine bottle wind chimes features a tranquil scene of a dragonfly buzzing around a marsh. Peaceful shades of blue and green bring the scene to life, and the metal clapper on this wind chime—anchored by a colorful "jewel" at the top of the bottle—rings out with soothing tones when the wind blows.
Amalia Flaisher studied graphic design, metal-smithing, photography and silk painting before exploring the creative opportunities of painting on glass and creating works like this recycled bottle wind chime. Amalia feels strongly that art should be enjoyed, not just displayed. "While glass crafting is a pure form of art, its splendor resides not only in the product but in the duality of its beauty and functionality. I have crafted each piece of glassware to be practical and useful." Ms. Flaisher currently resides in Litchfield, New Hampshire with her husband and two children. All her work is made in the USA.
