Crystal Cradle Inc. is an art company based in Edmonton, Alberta. We produce and distribute 3 brands of eco-art and light-sculpture - Crystal Cradle, Electronic Ouroborus, and Parastra Intergalactic. We currently operate out of a large industrial bay studio that we named Spaceport Studio.
What kind of art do we make?
Crystal Cradle Inc. produces eco-art (short for "ecological art"), which means that all of our pieces are crafted with re-used or energy-efficient materials. We care about being good stewards of the Earth. We re-use existing waste materials and reform them in unconventional arrangements, creating beautiful pieces of art that inspire a sense of playfulness and imagination. Our products include eco-jewelry, creature sculpture, and decorative lamps.We also run an event decoration service, where we install fabulous custom-built lights [crafted with re-used and energy-efficient materials] for special events.
All Crystal Cradle Inc. products contain at least one of the following components :
Elements from nature, such as crystals and seashells
Upcycles trash, such as old computer and bicycle parts
LED's, a highly energy efficient source of light
