Light Columns

Steps:2
Geometric "topiaries" inspired by the paper sculptures of Isamu Noguchi stand on both sides of this swimming pool. A few white plastic beach balls tied to weighted lines float in the pool like pearls cut loose from a giant strand (for safety, never cover the surface of a pool with a large number of balls).
Materials
  • Bamboo stick or dowel, 6 feet long and 1 inch in diameter
  • 50-bulb string of lights
  • Paper lanterns (ours were 14 inches in diameter)
