Dale Chihuly, glass artist extraordinaire, had a fabulously bright idea when he ventured into the art of glassblowing. His work is indescribably exquisite with brilliantly colored large-scale sculptures, strikingly displayed, to delight the eye.
I was lucky to be able to drink in the vivid colors and stunning shapes of his designs at the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum in Seattle. It was a definite item on my to-do list while in the Pacific Northwest and I was not disappointed. Balls and bowls, twisting spirals and rigid spikes, flowers and coils, fluted plates and frilled edges in glorious rainbow colors were a terrific treat. Chihuly’s art is a wonderfully “Bright Idea”, certain to provide pleasure for thousands of art lovers for a long, long time.
