Google images is great, look what I found, I can't get enough of this! This is just awesome, I've lately added "cacti" to my list of obsessions. So; coral, chandeliers, and now saguaro cactus. I came across this a bit ago when researching my current social design topic: up-cycling. This is a 9' high cactus created from recycled green glass beer bottles, barbed wire, and welded steel. It was created by some glass artists in New Mexico, Robbin's Ranch Art Glass. I find it their most interesting and innovative piece, it is their logo created into sculpture. I really love this piece, I want one, a little pin made like this would be so much fun! So here's a good example of up-cycling as an art form, and it is very successful.
