About Dale 

Dale Wayne is an art teacher, painter,  glass artist, and writer but she is best known for her work with recycled plastic bottles including an installation using 10,000 bottles and a piece that traveled to the Unite Arab Emirates and back.  In cooperation with Busch Gardens and Hillsborough county school she created a holiday tree that is featured every year. She worked with school groups to create “Harriet’s Tree”, a tree to honor her friend harriet Lake who diligently collected water bottles for Dale up until her passing. The tree won best of show.  Dale’s installations have been featured in Virginia, Maryland, Florida, Michigan, The United Arab Emirates. " Transforming trash into something cherished is inherently hopeful and I never cease to be amazed how the process touches people. I jump at opportunities to share techniques 


"Whether I am working in recycled plastic, painting landscapes in Alcohol Ink, or making jewelry from my hand blown glass beads, I give my materials breathing room to surprise me. Relating to the materials playfully gives my finished pieces a life and opinion of their own. They invite me in a dance on a horizon line that lies between struggle and beauty. I find hope and joy on that horizon, and desire to communicate that wonder in my work."
