Seattle’s Garden and Glass Museum showcases the magical worlds created by glass artist Dale Chihuly.
Chihuly creates huge glass wonderlands,
resembling hallucinatory under-seascapes,
full of phantasmagorical deep-sea creatures.
Mirrors create reflective visions like crystalline creatures from outer space.
There are magic mushrooms,
glowing like alien forms,
in surreal secret gardens.
Visiting here one feels much like Alice with a two-way ticket to wonderland!
Cheers to you from the inventive worlds of Dale Chihuly~

This is just incredible
And it is so huge! You walk through rooms and gardens of this. Wow indeed!
It is incredibly creative!
They colorful and interesting look glasses. You have the right word – wonderland!
It is a powerful sensory experience walking through these worlds!
I love Dale’s work
I can see why!
It is why I started melting glass objects 🙂
Oh that makes perfect sense~
Beautiful. A creative genius.
Indeed he is.
Such bursts of color! Beautiful!
Yes, can you believe I went here without my camera? I had to run back to the hotel in the rain to get it……
Now THAT’S dedication!
Stunning shots… Vivid colors…
I love Chihuly’s use of color. It is so unrestrained!
Full of joy… colors which brighten life!
I find colored glass so fascinating. It’s not just the colors, it’s the shine, the reflection all of it. I start to sound like a broken record when I -once again- praise the great pictures.
I suggest you post some blooper shots once, just to make lousy photographers like me feel good 🙂
We could make a whole blog devoted to photographic bloopers! It is such a good idea! We could start a blog asking readers to submit their biggest blooper photos. We could have a separate category for blooper selfies. It would be hilarious and lots of fun!
And, yes, I love the reflective quailities of glass too. It makes us question what we see, what is real and what is illusion. Is there any difference? Fascinates me…..
I am going to win, I have files and files of bloopers 🙂
We could give out prizes, but that might actually be insulting…….. 😉 😉
Insult me, Insult me 😉
Even Captain Picard thinks it’s funny!
Dale is really a great artist. I saw his work being displayed at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. I was blown away. Thanks Cindy for sharing this.
His imagination is quite incredible isn’t it!
Absolutely. Such a gifted artist.
Such a genius….and since he was blinded in his left eye (ironically, by glass, as he smashed through the windshield in a car accident) and otherwise forced to give up the actual glassblowing in favor of design and directing projects, he says now he can really step back and see…..
Isn’t that awesome! He had quite a lot of loss in his life in addition to losing one eye, yet his work shouts pure joy.
These are great!
Chihuly had an exhibit in Toronto this summer and I took lots of pictures. I contacted his office to see if I could post the pictures on my site but they told me to contact a lawyer. I was so rattled that I deleted his pictures and abandoned the idea. I was really impressed with his work and blown away by what he charged to buy a piece of his work. Maybe I didn’t approach his people in the right manner. Nevertheless, it was one amazing exhibit.
How terrible for you and how short sighted of his office. You should post. Photographers were allowed in the Garden and Glass Museum. Unless the museum has policies preventing you from taking photos which it obviously didn’t, and as long as you cite the source on your blog, you are free to post.
They allowed us to take photos inside the exhibit but when I consulted them at his web site they were all caught up in the copy rights issues. Like you, I had no intention of monetizing it in anyway, just to introduce people to this great art form and amazing artist. If I have to consult with a lawyer to do this – forget it.
Exactly! I did notice there is a focus on merchandizing.
I am glad that we live in a world with artists!
The alternative is unthinkable isn’t it~
It is indeed, my dear friend!!!
These are gorgeous! My husband got me the gift of a glass blowing lesson. Just need to find the time to do it!
It looks so difficult to me, but it would be fascinating to try. I hope you take photos and blog about the experience. I would be very interested!
I will definitely blog about it! I did try once years ago. Wasn’t exactly a success but we’ll see
Interested to hear and see!
I need to see this for myself, Cindy — but in the meantime, you’ve done a wonderful job in showing me how lovely these things are!!
I would love to see your photos when you do! His work allows for very creative photography because you can pick and choose what you want to emphasize, how you want to work with the light, angles, reflections etc. It makes for very different looking photos depending upon what you want, which makes it lots of fun~
Knew you would! <3
Amazing art Cindy and I like your vision with a 2-ways ticket 🙂
Going to Wonderful would be wonderful as long as your could get back out when you chose to. Being trapped there would be scary!
Chihuly is one of my art-heroes – how fabulous to see his working in your post. We first saw his displays at a marvellous and memorable exhibition in London’s Kew Gardens. I adore the way in which each piece is a wonder in its own right, and also combines with the landscape to produce something which is most definitely greater than the sum of the parts! 😀🌸❤️
Oh it must have been gorgeous in Kew! The blending with the landscape is genius isn’t it! What amazed me the most you can see in the last photo. He took these black an white pieces, and placed them with monochromatic plantings so the whole scence looked black and white, but then around the edges he put blooming flowers. The photo looks doctored, black and white in the center, techni-color in the perimeter, but this is what he created and it shows itself best in photos. Amazing!
Amazing is indeed the word! Such imagination; such skill to pull it off – we could go on and on!! 🙂
Very happy you think so & cheers to you Kerry~
This blog earned a Bean Pat as blog pick of the day. Check it out at: http://patbean.wordpress.com
I am honored. Thank you for your thoughtfulness Pat!
Great captures of a clever and fascinating show Cindy.
Merci beaucoup mon ami~ <3
Just love his work also seen in London – colours and shapes amazing
A blogger told me there was an exhibit in Kew Gardens. I would love to see that. It must have been stunning!
Yes but I missed the one in Kew but saw one in the Halcyon Gallery in New Bond Street London- I am sure Kew would have been even more remarkable
Reblogged this on O LADO ESCURO DA LUA.
Obrigada por sua consideração e elogios a você no belo Brasil!
hve a nice sunday!
These are so beautiful! I especially like the outdoor one with the tall blue spires. 🙂
I liked this too. There were several different gardens all showcasing different color themes.
wow what a find, and you have a gift of being able to show them to us, via your lens…xxxoo
Ah, so encouraging and motivating, thank you & cheers too~
Your photographs are colorful and pretty, Cindy. 🙂
You are a lovely person Rnanu~ <3
I grew up getting to go to the Corning Museum of Glass and seeing the amazing glass artisans at work but I’ve never seen anything as beautiful this.
I have never even heard of the Corning Museum of Glass, so now I must google it. So glad you feel about Chihuly as I do. He is quite unique especially considering many of his pieces are huge, like worlds you walk through.
If you’re ever in NY State it is worth a visit. Thank you for sharing the beauty that abounds in the rest of this world outside of my corner of it. <3
J’aime ce blog, le travail soigné qui touche l’art. Mes félicitations.
Cynthia bises de Provence…
Je vous remercie beaucoup mon merveilleux ami de la belle Provence!
Fantastic! The colors are amazing.
He is not one tiny bit afraid of mixing bold colors which I love too!
To quote Captain Haddock, “Great glowing globs of glass!”
You are a Tintin fan! So is my husband~
Hard to find an artist with a greater imagination than Chihuly, Cyndi. What he does with glass always boggles my mind. –Curt
These are gorgeous, Cindy!
Hope Day 5 is being kind to you my friend. Thoughts & prayers are flying to you daily~
Isn’t that place in Tacoma where the Murano Glass collection is?
Tacoma is where Chihuly was born. There probably is an exhibit there but I haven’t seen it. I have been to Murano in Italy but don’t know where else Murano glass is exhibited. It is sold in many places though. So sorry, this one I don’t know.
I saw it once on that Sunday Morning CBS Show and it’s this massive collection of Murano
Wow! Would like to see it. I love Murano aquariums. I have one I inherited from my grandfather that he must have bought long ago…..
Cool.. I know it’s in Tacoma, other than that I know nothing.
You know a lot~
Beautiful, love it. We visited a Chihuly exhibition at Denver Botanic Gardens August 2014.
I know there are Chihuly exhibits in 200 locations worldwide, but I am learning the specifics from bloggers. He’s everywhere!
Wonderful pictures from wonderland, Cindy! I’m a fan.
It certainly makes an impression!
Chihuly is amazing – I saw his exhibit while it was in Richmond, VA. It was mesmerizing seeing his colorful creations. I, too, wrote a blogpost about it.
I think it may have been your post that I saw awhile back…….
I love his work. These are fantastic.
It’s like alternate worlds of glass~
These are spectacular, so unusual and surreal.
And fun to see, they are a lot of fun~
Yes, this work DOES make me think of Alice in Wonderland! Very trippy. I’ve been to Seattle once but didn’t know of this place, so thanks for this introduction as well as providing a splash of color on a grey day Cindy! I don’t know if you’re getting this storm up there in the Pacific Northwest or not but NorCal is being hammered by it. Great for the plants to get rain though!
I am bascially obsessed with your storm. I read about the tornados in Washington and Oregon, and I am concerned for people, but mostly just sad. The wild animals are full on stressed at The Holler and so are the plants. So many thousands of trees have died. The hawks try desperately to pick up moisture from my hose sprayed vertically to them, but they are too distrustful to get much benefit. They never have flown so close, so I know how desperate they are. I worry about the Great Horned Owls a lot. They also are coming closer than normal, but they won’t take water from me. At this point, I worry the severe drought in SoCal, having moved into it’s 7th year, is going to turn the whole place into a desert, which is devastating for the wildlife, and the flora.
The vultures and ravens were spinning close again in the sky today. The sight is amazing. Maybe a hundred, circling because something else has died.
It is bad here Lynn.
We desperately need rain.
Yeah, I’ve seen some of the dried up wildlife refuges around the Sacramento area during my travels. You see big bare patches of green ground (that used to be algae floating on the ponds that used to be there). Yeah, no water is no good. I hope for rain where you’re at as well because, as your posts have shown, The Holler is just amazing when it’s teeming with life!
I think so too. I love art that brings the world together. We need it.
Beautiful pics. Have you seen any of the documentaries on PBS that show how his team builds these things? Interesting stuff. My sister and bro in law have a glass studio in Denver – they tried to show me how once. I still have that misshaped shot glass…
Yeah, I watched the video at the museum and I have been to Murano and The Czech Republic and have seen the glass blowing. It is something that is amazing. I see how it’s done, but it astounds me. It is an amazing art form, and it is HOT. Dangerous. You have a very cool sister and brother in law, which fits with you. I love your mishaped shot glass. Smiling….thank you!
Such delicate structures. I wouldn’t want to be the one in charge of dusting them!!! 😳
Oh, I didn’t think of this! WIth his trees especially, it must be seriously difficult!
I would think scary, at the least! Still, so beautiful!!
Yes. I wouldn’t want the job. I remember taking photos of the inside of the bowls and being very conscious of not touching them.
You’re braver than me!
Such glassy artistry, my friend! ♡*̥̻̥̻̥͙*̻̥̻̥͙*̥̻̥͙*̻̥͙*̥͙ ꒰ ˆ ॢ꒵ ॢˆ꒱*̻͙*̥̻͙*̻̥̻͙*̥̻̥̻͙*̻̥̻̥̻͙♡

Such vibrant colours – even the monochrome
It’s true, although I hadn’t thought of the monochrome this way until you said it! Thanks~
Reblogged this on Musings on Life & Experience and commented:
Beautiful and highly unusual.
It is both of these things. Highly imaginative. I am pleased it captured your interest & cheers to you Patricia~ <3
Gorgeous! Love the colours and shapes. Amazing how the artist is able to create this beauty:)
Some of the pieces are so large and so perfectly thin. It must be difficult to make these~
Beautiful photos of his artworks, Cindy! Chihuly is great artist and has an enormous vision.
Agreed, and thank you Amy! <3
einfach super toll, liebe Cindy, alles Gute für die kommende Woche
Vielen Dank mein lieber Freund. Hab eine groBartige Woche!
Vielen Dank und beste Grüße kommen von mir zu dir
I often wow on your posts, but that deserves a WOW!
Awww, I am honored. Thank you sincerely!
My pleasure. 🙂
OMG, Wow, do I love this! Amazing photos, Cindy. :O)
So happy you do love this! It is so full of positive energy and feeling. I love it too~
It’s just brilliant creativity and very beautiful too.
Those are wonderful.
Very happy you think so & cheers to you!
Stunning! I would love to see one of his displays.
There are 200 worldwide, so you could google to see when you would be close to one of them. Hope you do visit so I can see your photos!
Oh Cindy, what a visual delight! Watching a glass blower is like watching magic…the objects they’re able to create are truly amazing!
The ones in the Czech Republic were the most amazing I have ever seen. They create such intricate, complicated pieces. It is an amazing art form!
Cindy, I love normal glass work so this is pure heaven! Why oh why does it have to be so far away?? The under sea landscape one is psychedelic. Absolutely stunning – I would love to see the manufacture of such large items; astonishing the size of them.
Yes the size is what most impressed me too and the perfect thin-ness of these huge pieces. It must be very hard to do this. Google Chihuly exhibits. He has exhibitions in 200 locations worldwide. Maybe, hopefully, there might be one closer to you~
Thank you for that – he has work at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and we were going to the capital anyway – a small detour now! Can’t wait to see some in real life.
Oh, I am so excited and looking forward to your post on this! Wonderful museum so I imagine it will be quite well done.
I was there last year, Cindy. What a place! It was a rainy afternoon so I didn’t see the outdoor area in all its glory, but the indoor displays were magical! One of THE places to go in Seattle 🙂
Yes! I agree with everything you say here. It was raining when we visited too, so I was concerned the garden shots wouldn’t work, but due to Chihuly’s genius with color, they happily did. They significantly brighten a cloudly Seattle day!
Chihuly is amazing! I will try to take in this exhibit if I ever get back to Seattle. But I like the way Chihuly’s works pop up everywhere, when you least expect it. I’ve seen his work scattered at the Chicago Botanic Gardens, Desert Bot. Garden in Phoenix, at the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis, Garfield Park in Chicago, etc.
Kew Gardens in London. He has 200 exhibits worldwide!
BTW, these pictures are spectacular!
Thanks, he makes an impression, doesn’t he!
Cindy these are awesome!! I love blown glass designs. What a feast for the eyes!
Thank you. The outdoor shots were in the rain, so it gives you an idea of how brilliantly he uses color!
I love Chihuly’s artwork – this is a beautiful post featuring it! Thank you for sharing one of Seattle’s home-grown artists…kudos!
Thank you, as always, for being awesome! <3
Ah! Cindy!! I LOVE HIS WORK!! One day I will get to see it in person 🙂 Thanks for sharing ♡
I want to hear your impressions when you do & cheers to you Lorrie~
Love that word!
Astonishing. I love the joie-de-vivre in blue outdoor sculpture.
His work is full of the joy of life isn’t it!
I went to the Seattle Chihuly Gardens and Museum and loved it. Is it the same place? Lovely photos…
It is indeed and so glad you were there! We also rode the ferris wheel the same day! Woo Hoo!
Wow what gorgeous works of art! Hugz Lisa and Bear
They derfinitely get your attention don’t they!
Wow… It is a real hand made beauty!
Yes, remarkable isn’t it!
For sure it is!
I’ve seen his work at other gardens, I imagine his museum would be fantastic. He’s a creative genius!
Agreed (as always!) <3
Great place, Cindy! I will definitely visit it. I’m a big fan of his. The colors look marvelous. They are so varied and intense.
They even make a rainy Seattly day pop with brightness!
Definitely. How large are the glass pieces in the first 2 shots?
la vita è un gioco di colori, bisogna saperli cogliere e farli sorridere come fai tu con le tue meravigliose immagini
grazie per la gioia che mi dai
Amo le persone che non hanno paura del colore! Grazie mille mio caro amico. È illuminato i miei giorni! Abbracci! <3
Hi Cindy, love love love your art.. fantastic..
You as an artist, can appreciate the talent of Chihuly. Thank you~ <3
Reblogged this on and commented:
gorgeous work Cindy
Hugs & blessings Sherri~ <3
So happy you enjoy them!
Fully “exploited” the freedom of this art movement, for which he became popular
His artworks are Firework in Glass
Wunderschön wünsche eine gute Woche lieber Gruß von mir Gislinde
Danke mein lieber Gislinde! Haben Sie eine schone Woche!
Wow! Such a beautiful and magical collection of glass creations to stir the heart and imagination. Did you get to play with Alice? XD
I wish! She would be incredibly fun to explore wonderland with!
Reblogged this on Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings and commented:
I love the glass artwork and sculptures of Dale Chihuly…Cindy captures these pieces perfectly! Thank you for sharing – they’re perfect!
Oh my gosh! Absolutely stunning artistry. What a thrill to see such beauty up close. I have never heard of creations like these. Thank you for introducing me to them, <3
They really do create quite an impression. I am very glad you enjoyed them. Sending cheers & hugs to you Nancy~
Saw his exhibition in Kew Gardens, London. Brilliant.
I have been hearing from bloggers about this. I can well imagine it made an impact. I would love to have seen this~
WoW! Very amazing, Cindy!
They were doing this in ancient Egypt!
Reblogged this on penpowersong.
Hugs to you and happy week!
These vibrant colors and your vibrant photographs are striking!
I am honored. Thank you!
Wow, these photos are amazing! All the colors and creation done in glass is unbelievable! 🙂
Grazie mille. It is impressive escpecialy in terms of size and scope.
I bet he is a little bit of both! 😉
Merci beaucoup mon ami!
I think I have seen this artists work a few other places. I think I was watching a home show once where the couple was gifted a chandler by him. I remember thinking how do you keep that clean!
But then perhaps in the house that it was in…they have someone else to do the cleaning! 🙂
Dusting these would be a major bear and must be a full time job!
Those colours are absolutely amazing, and what shapes! 🙂
I bet he was a very creative little kid! 😉
Magnificent. Such vibrant colors!!
Full of positive and life!
These are just gorgeous Cindy, I love the photos. 🙂
I am honored! Thank you & cheers~
So many wonderful colors! You took great photos 🙂 And YES that one does look like an alien a bit!
It looked like something from space or a more complex DNA molecule, or both. Definitely otherworldly!
Hi Cindy!! Love the glass set in the organic outdoor settings– makes it more vivid! It all sort of looks like the Dr Seuss of the glass world! Fun to see you off traveling– again!!! take care. xox
Oh, I love that, “Dr Suess of the glass world.” I grew up near Theodore, and climbed over his fence once to try and meet him!
Funny!! That would be awesome for a kids to see the real Dr. Seuss! I think we all feel connected to him trough his ubiquitous books!
Wow, very colorful and georgous imagination
Thank you for sharing Cindy
Thank you more for your kind appreciation & cheers to you!
you are very welcome Cindy
Wow and wow again. It’s all remarkable and fabulous.
It is not subtle either!
Yay! Happy you think so~
This is a very beautiful post, Cindy. Love it!
So happy you do and thank you Isabel! <3
Wow, absolutely tunning photos, Cindy. I saw his work in a botanical garden in Florida some years ago and I loved it!
Ah, thanks so much. I heard from bloggers he had an exhibition in Kew Gardens. I would love to have seen that too. He gets around doesn’t he!
He sure does! You are doing quite well yourself! 👍🏻😘
Cindy, thanks so much for sharing these pictures. They are simply breathtaking!
I am so pleased you enjoyed them & thank you~
WoW! Those look amazing! My kids would love it. 🙂
There are 200 exhibits worldwide so you may possibly find one near you and your kids who I hope are old enough to not break the glass!
They would be careful! I’ll definitely look online and see if some close to Denver! 👌
They sound like nice kids!
They are and thank you! 🙂
It never ceases to amaze me what a master artisan can accomplish on earth. I’d like to know how many artisans were involved in this project.
I would guess a lot due to Dale’s disabilities and the sheer number of his exhibits~
At one time when Tom was moving widely in the ‘glass circle’ (sounds funny doesn’t it) we always talked about disabilities and the part they played in masterful creations. It’s my understanding he can no longer blow from the long pipe required to make the large creations. Tom used 8′ and 10′ pipes for his glass. I was always in awe of his ability and would never pretend to have the ability to have even enough strength to hold the pipe long enough to do all you have to do before putting the pipe down let alone have enough air. Those large pieces require multiple dips into vats of glass and unknown numbers of heating over ‘the glory hole’ before they are spun and beaten into submission. I looked at your pictures carefully as well as Tom. It brought back many memories. It also scares me a bit as Tom has started setting aside certain pieces we have in our home he would like to pass on to others. Of course, I already have MINE marked!
The process is amazing and mysterious. Might Tom be willing to do a post with photographs of some of his pieces? Any explanation of how he made them would be fascinating to readers.
I hear you on the fear factor of people planning special gifts to people when they die, but I have a “letter of intent,” clarifying who I want special items to go too, so I can understand his thinking~
Thus far, Tom has only written one post and that was in response to a post to a post I wrote about the brutality of his father.
His blown glass along with his stained glass is world-wide. I have several pieces of glass I took out of galleries in Carmel when I learned we were moving to DC. Tom always thought photograps of his work in progress would jink his concepts but I have snuck a few here and there. Now I wish I had more.
His photography skills far exceed mine. I hate to compare mine with his in the same sentence. However, I’ll throw out your suggestion and see what he has to say. He now has that ocassional day when he roams around the house as if looking for something to do.
I also have that letter of ‘intent.’ I know from my fathers letter of ‘intent,’ things didn’t go the way Dad wanted. Those extra special people beyond the family will have what I want them to have before I leave this earth and most already do.
Yes, I know the “joy” of families too well! I wouldn’t have a thirty year career if families didn’t treat each other horribly too much of the time. Tom’s brutal father, relatives ignoring letters of intent and operating selfishly, are just the tip of the iceberg, aren’t they, in the myriad ways family members can hurt and damage each other. It is very sad and too prevalent and keeps psychotherapists way too busy.
If we could get Tom to just post some photos of his work on your blog, he might reconnect with his creative talents and they have such healing power. Besides we would overwhelm him with love and appreciation. I know how talented he is and I would love to be able to tell him so directly.
Hugs & love to you too Sheri~
Thanks Cindy. I’ll ask him to start photographing his glass we have here at the house. Today would be a good day for him to photography jewelry [mine needs cleaning] – see I have an alternative motive!
I am very excited about this project. Be sure to alert me when it posts so I don’t miss it!
I will. I’ll plant the seed. Tom has problems with his hands shaking when he’s trying to do things. It’s so frustrating for him as he’s such a perfectionist.
I can well imagine. Shaking hands have to be extraordinarily frustrating for a glass artist and I understand being perfectionistic. So, sorry Sheri. I hope he feels like he still can share with us, because we won’t see the flaws that he does, we will only see the art & beauty coming from his perfect heart. <3
Notice the shrinking space allowed for our discussion as it goes on! SO annoying WP!
Bad, Bad – I’m long winded and know it!
It is NOT you! It is WP! They did this with my friend who is having a bone marrow transplant now and blogging about it. I think they do it to limit discussion and it annoys the heck out of me. How dare they limit discussions! I love them!
I love discussions as well. That’s the heart of blogging as far as I’m concerned. We get Tom’s results of the endo tomorrow and are on pins and needles. Hope you are well and taking dynamite pictures. You have such a gift.
I agree with you about discussions and relationships being the heart of blogging. We cast our nets upon the internet and find kindred souls. Holding and sending prayers regarding Tom’s results~ <3
Beautiful. I love Dale Chihuly’s work and have visited his displays all across the US.
Oh how wonderful! Lucky you~ <3
Well done. Stunning work brilliantly presented.
Awww, thanks much Nicci & cheers to you my friend~ <3
Wow! Those are incredible! They must have taken years to make!
He has a staff now that he supervises because he is partially blind, but I am sure the labor is intensive!
Cindy, your photos of Chihuly’s creations are every bit as artistic and magical as the works themselves! Stunning!
Oh, that is incredibly thoughtful and most motivating. You are a very kind friend! <3 <3
Wow! Some of the glasswork looks similar to work that is on display in the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas and in the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville. I wonder if it’s the same artist? Beautiful photos!
I know the Bellagio is Chihuly and Nashville has several exhibits. Check out: http://dishmag.com/issue116/lifestyle/13333/blown-away-glass-master-chihuly-takes-nashville/
Are you sure you’re in Seattle ??? This looks like some kind of science fiction fairyland, Cuz……., but it sure is beautiful. 🙂
We are back at The Holler now and it was a science fiction fairlyland! You would love seeing it cuz! <3
schönes Wochenende wünsche ich
Vielen dank mein leiber Freund und Frohe Whochenende! <3
I am happy to say I have visited this museum twice, and I know I will go back. Your photos of his exemplary work are fantastic, Cindy; you do this master great justice.
Oh, I am honored. You are a lovely friend and a kindred traveling and photographing spirit! <3 <3
The colors are stunning. I have yet to make it to that museum. Great photography!
Thank you! It definitely is worth a visit.
What a Strange beauty!
This museum will be at the top of my list the next time we visit the west coast. Absolutely amazing! Anita
Oh, I can’t wait to read your post about it & cheers to you Anita!
Incríveis essas cores! Luz e brilho perfeitos!
Você é a alegria de saber virtually!
Olá Cindy! Agora também acompanho seus trabalhos pelo Facebook. Estou adorando!
Oh maravilhoso. Vou olhar para você no FB! <3
Now, there is some colorful yard-art!
In my old house with a HOA the neighbors would complain, at The Holler the birds would love it!! Much better at The Holler!
Would love to visit there! Your photos bring them to life! We have one of his large piece on permanent display at our local museum. Cannot imagine seeing so many in one place.
There are about 200 exhibits worldwide. Maybe you can find one closer to you!
Quite impressive. One of his pieces, Cathedral Violet Chandelier, hangs in a brightly sunlit, open stairwell at the Daum Museum.
Oh yes, it looks distinctly familiar. Wonderful! Love the color~
A visit to the glassy wonderland!
Yes, and one must be careful in this fragile wonderland! <3
He is a WOW kind of artist!
Just incredible, isn’t he? Fabulous shots! 🙂
Yes, he was, and still is, quite unique~
Bookmarking this particular article. Gian is going to write a book of original, contemporary fairy tales (his lifelong dream actually). We are going to use this as inspiration for our fantasy world Etherea.
I love the name Etherea! Reminds me of the island of Eleuthra but more ethereral. Perfect & I look forward to reading this!
Wowza these are brilliant, what a great museum, I’ve been brought up with an appreciation of glass art my Mum loves it but these are something else. Those glass spikes would look great lit up in the garden.
You have an artists eye. Check out the glass at night:
PS- Just noticed the third image is mine. Woo Hoo!
Congrats, I’m not surprised your photos are amazing!
You are a sweetheart and your thoughtfulness is appreciated! <3
I like a fool passed an opportunity to purchase a Chihuly piece on sale at the Boca Raton Museum for only $2500.00. I am still kicking myself almost 20 years later. I love his art work in glass.
Thank you for sharing.
Thank you for the like,Cindy.: 🙂
Definitely want to get to Seattle to see this. Chihuly is amazing! I’ve seen his works in the least likely places, and it’s always spectacular!
His work is all over the world and I am glad you have seen it!
Thank you for the like, Cindy. 🙂
His work is stunning and instantly recognisable!
Yes, because he is distinctive and unique! Thank you~
