Do you LOVE glass like I do? I have always been fascinated by it. This Fall I was so blessed to go visit my friend Laurie that lives in the Seattle area (there's another post about her amazing house is you click HERE). And while there Laurie & a couple of my friends (Cindy Craine &Vickie Orlando) & I went downtown to see the Dale Chihuly Museum (Also click HERE or on anything in blue for a link). AMAZING!!!! There beneath the Space Needle sits an EXPLOSION of color & design. Anyone who love ART has to appreciate this amazing work. The pieces above & below are displayed on the ceiling in one room (much like his pieces in the Belagio in Las Vegas).
The exhibit below was in a room with dark walls & the center of the room just filled with COLOR!
Below was an almost floor to ceiling (as you can tell by looking at the people standing next to it) piece & the colors were divine. This room was called Sea Life.
A little closer up shows the detailed sea life done in GLASS! Anyone who knows me KNOWS I'm an Ocean/Sea Life/Mermaid Girl.
People always ask me what my favorite color is... I don't have one!! I guess that's the Gemini in me but, I can't choose A favorite color. I just love color! GREEN is so beautiful to me so, this gorgeous swirling green beauty also spoke to my soul.
Just look at the detail!!!! Some day I would love to take a glass blowing class. On the plane a passenger I visited with gave me the name of a place in Seattle to study glass blowing...
Outside in the gardens the sculptures were everywhere in EVERY color you can imagine!
As I said, this garden sits right below the Space Needle.
To get to the garden you walk through a huge glass hall (I bet they have Events & Weddings in here... I can just see it can't you?) Look at the beautiful glass hanging from the ceiling!
This is looking at it from the outside on the other side.
Seattle is truly a beautiful place & this little piece of ART HEAVEN just makes it even more special!
I hope you enjoyed this BURST of color. I'm in the middle of YET MORE remodel work in the house so, I needed something happy to look/post about because right now my world is workmen & dust. And no money for travel. But, I can reflect on my previous adventures & dream about the future ones! HUGS!
