Hand Crafted Jacked And Tie Using Light Art And Steel Sculpture
This picture shows three light art works that I created.

The short sleeve lighted clear plastic jacket was made for bicyling as well as going out on the town. It had optical fiber and LED's for lighting (not El Wire).

The bow tie is glass on steel. The wings of the bow tie are pieces of glass that are glued to the bicycle gear in the center. In front of the bicycle gear is a quartz crystal.

Inside the jacket are bicycle chain suspenders with quartz crystals that are lit from within by LED's.

If you look carefully on the left hand side of the jacket, you can see a steel sculpture. That is the battery holder. All of my lighted clothing uses lithium batteries that are enclosed by these steel sculptures.

I try to combine both the utilitarian and the artistic in my work.
