Popsicle sticks- 04.06.06

The Art Office in Indio (yes, home of Coachella) - has been making these incredible structures out in the desert - that are much like enormous popsicle stick art. “WOOD SCREEN CYLINDER AT JOSHUA TREE
Our proposal seeks to transform and record the colors, light, and landscape of the desert through a folding, geometrically manipulated, structural wood screen cylinder created from a very simple, readily available, construction-based module: a douglas fir surveyor stake.” Phillip Smith, one of their principals emailed us about this gorgeous project, and you certainly need to go see more. I wish i had a screen like that in my house! Or it would be perfect in those SF Bay windows!

I too am looking for popsicle stick lamp and or bowl patterns for my disabled husband or anything more advanced than projects for children. We made a lot of these things back in the 50’s and 60’s, surely someone still has patterns that they are willing to share.

Do you have any instructions telling how to make popsicle stick lamps? If not, could you please tell me where I might find any patterns/instructions for making them?

Hi everyone! I couldn’t BELIEVE the popsicle stick art!! I too use to make the popsicle stick lamps & bowls back in the 70s. I have grand children now, & would like to teach them, but I just can’t seem to find the instructions on the internet. Does anyone here know a website that has them(free) Thanks so much for any help ahead of time. Sandy
