These Tiny Chairs Were Made Entirely of Champagne Corks

(Michael A. Parker)

Design Within Reach is a home furnishings company. Every year, it holds a contest that invites artists to build chairs using only 2 champagne corks. The only materials that contributors may use are the wire frames, the metal wrappers, and, of course, the cork wood itself. The results are marvelously creative.

I used my favorite wine cork chair example -- that from "The Fisher King" -- to introduce twisted wire trees and other shapes to my dd's 4th grade class. (Champagne cork chairs were a no-no for the young-uns, and drinking enough to save 28 corks would put me in jail!) What a hit that found objects -- in this case, a rock as a base, and some floral wire -- could be transformed into art, both kitschy and practical!
