Grow Your Own Crystals

Michael Demps is an interdisciplinary artist, musician, and DJ.  His artwork Untitled: Dehiscent Echo (2017) was featured in The Studio Museum’s exhibition “Fictions.” Demps’ sculpture incorporates several elements such as rock salt, Rochelle salt (for growing crystals), candle wax, steel, insulation foam, and low-frequency sounds. 


In some spaces, it is believed that crystals are great conduits for energy, making them powerful instruments for amplifying moods and atmospheres.   


Taking inspiration from art, work with an adult to grow your own crystals! Inspired by Michael Demp’s artwork Untitled: Dehiscent Echo (2017), use everyday household materials to create a colorful, sparkling, sculpture.
