New York-based artist Kevin Champeny is known for merging different aspects of painting, sculpture and mosaics in his large-scale creations. Previously featured on Colossal, he created a large scale rose image called “A Rose By Any Other Name,” a 75 pound piece of art made up of 15,000+ individually cast urethane pieces of candy. And now, he’s made the news again with this crazy gummy bear chandelier. The chandelier comes in two sizes, the larger of which is made of 5,000 hand-cast acrylic gummy bears, measures approximately 31″ in diameter, and weighs roughly 50 pounds.
For those who are obsessed enough with this fun design, you can buy it on Jellio for a whopping $6,500! Considering the extreme detail that goes into this work, we’re not surprised. (Luckily the 18″ diameter chandelier is much less costly, at $2400.)
