Stunning Chihuly Glass!

Hi Everyone...hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Today's post isn't related to interior design, but it is certainly related to beautiful design.  

I had such a great experience on Saturday afternoon.  We had a friend in town and we ended up going to the Chihuly Museum of Garden and Glass.  I have long been a fan of Washington-born Dale Chihuly, but this museum blew.me.away.  It was such a beautiful experience I just had to share it with all of you! 

Take a look at a few of the pieces that we saw:


His time spent growing up around Puget Sound influences his sea-inspired and native american work.



Many of the installations were set in natural settings, reflective of his inspirations.






I hope you enjoyed the tour.  If you ever get to Seattle, don't miss this museum!

Wow for sure! I've never been there, Barbara, but it is now definitely on my list of 'must see' places. I love beautiful glass and this is different than anything I've ever seen before. Thanks for sharing!

Love this, Barbara!! My mom took my boys and me to see the Chihuly exhibit when it was at the Dallas Arboretum. We were all blown away. Such a talent and you are so lucky to have it there in Seattle!!

Happy new week!

Barbara I have been fortunate to see two of his exhibitions - one at the Phoenix Art Museum and the other at the Desert Botanical Garden also in Phoenix. Both were so amazingly beautiful and it was lovely to see his work again on your blog. Thank you!

Hi Barbara - You know, I still haven't made it down to the Chihuly Museum yet. You are inspiring me to make sure we make an afternoon of it soon. He was a patient of my Dad's and bartered some dental work with a very, very early piece of his years and years ago - you would never recognize it as his!

We are home. I'm starting to come up for air. I'd love to catch up with you one of these days - maybe that long postponed Red Ticking visit?

Hope all is well! XOXO

Hello Ms. Barbara,

I am embarrased to say that I have never been! But one of these days..

But first coffee with you - because I have not seen you for 15 about - hmm... 15 years!! (:

Hope all is well. Thinking of you.

Happy Memorial weekend!

ox, Mon
