To me bikes are most beautiful when in motion, however it is great to see bikes and bike parts used in other ways as well. Reader Jared contacted us and shared about a sculpture his Dad's company created. Isn't it great when fathers and sons get along? =)
Pictures and a video are below, and for more goodness you can visit the Creative Stained Glass Studio website. Makes me want some bike art for my place. The text below is from their website, thanks Jared!

Titled Tour de Verre (Tour of Glass), the sculpture celebrates the joy of an active lifestyle, and bicycling in particular. In this piece we utilized bike wheels and other pieces of hardware that had reached the end of their practical lives in order to show that it is never too late to embrace a more physical life. The colorful mouth blown glass illustrates the vitality that is the reward. The wheels follow a 38 foot long steel ribbon which represents the “Tour” of life and all its tumultuous challenges.
