Krystal Oâ€™Mara can see the art and the utilitarian in the wheel of a bicycle.
She uses rims, spokes, hubs â€” essentially the entire bicycle â€” to make hourglass coffee tables, imaginative lighting fixtures and chairs without backs.
â€œNot much goes to waste,â€ she said.
Her products range widely in price. A simple light fixture sells for $15, but custom, large-scale lighting equipment is priced at $1,500. â€œThe tables generally range from about $175 to $450,â€ she said.
