This is Glass!
Dale Chihuly is an American glass sculptor and entrepreneur. His works are considered unique to the field of blown glass, "moving it into the realm of large-scale sculpture," according to Wikipedia. Those words do not begin to explain the brilliance of his glass sculptures! To see even one is astounding. To see a large number gathered together is life-changing. There is a new museum in town, in Seattle. So new that it is not in many of the guidebooks. It is called "Chihuly - Garden and Glass" and it is stunning. These are three random pieces I photographed, and there are so many more, and each of them are radically different. You really need to come here and see genius at work!
