gummi glammi

Add some sweetness to your style ... with a gummi bear chandelier!

The chandelier was created by YaYa Chou, an artist based in Los Angeles. She's also made some other gummi sculptures, including a gummi bear rug, candles and a child's jumpsuit (which I find creepy).

But it's not all sugary sweet as I'd first thought - here's the artist's statement about the gummi bear series:

In this series, I explored the relationship between food consumption and class. The bright colors and soft texture of children's snacks construct a romantic scenario which draws my attention to the dangerous ingredient behind them. By rearranging the embellished snacks in the forms of luxury commodity, I wish to pose the questions: Who consume these foods? Who has the choice to choose?

And if you're worried about that chandelier melting all over your ballgown, YaYa answers all your concerns on her blog.

(Thanks for the link, Sonny. I know you're an expert on bears - gummi or otherwise!)

The chandelier and the household items are clever but your right the children's outfit is creepy. It's like something out of a horror story maybe they could call it Night of the Gummi.
