Literally picture Grandma's glassware in a different light: A British designer has done what we all wish we could do by taking cheap flea market junk and inexpensive materials to make expensive art. He took four collections of amber, green, purple, and clear flea market glassware and put them in a lightbox.
He's marketing them for $7,800 to $13,000
Implications - Aside from canvas paintings and sculptures, artists are always looking for something fresh, which is why graffiti has become popular since it's a modern technique that has recently entered the mainstream. By thinking outside the box, artists can attract a wider audience of those craving new, imaginative designs that are more unique than their formalists.
