Simply Mesmerizing

Quite a few years ago (let’s not mention how many, ok?), I went to see an exhibition of a few pieces from artist Dale ChihulyI was mesmerized by the glass and how breathtaking it was.  Beautiful colors, amazing shapes, enormous pieces of glass twisted into magnificent works of art.  It is something you have to see in person to really appreciate!  I’m thrilled that I got to see a few pieces of his work and would LOVE to own one of my own some day. I want a basket or a seaform some day.  These pictures were taken many years ago so I had to scan them in but I wanted to share just a few things that I saw that day. 


I was standing in front of this large piece.  Fabulous.  I grinned all day.

This one hung from a ceiling.  I’m not doing it justice.  It was VERY large and I don’t know if you can tell but it was in various shades of orange.


Now this one was on the floor and all of it was clear glass.  I know it looks strange but I tell you it was wonderful.

Have you ever heard me rave over something like this?  I’m a glass geek.  I can’t help it.

If anyone else has seen some of his work, let me know.  I’d love to hear what YOU thought!!
