Boston Museum of Fine Art--Chihuly: Through the Looking Glass

Wow, I can't describe how beautiful this exhibit of art glass was. I'm thinking I can find some inspiration in the gorgeous colors and shapes. Maybe you can too. (I'll be posting more pictures of the exhibit over the next few days.)

These first pictures come from a room where the ceiling was made of clear glass and was filled with Chihuly's glass sculptures. The light coming through the pieces of glass literally made them glow. They were indescribably stunning.






Let me know what you think.

AMAZING pictures!! I can see printing these out of fabric or making a screen print from the design!! Just beautiful work from Chihuly.

I was in the Bahamas many years ago at the Atlantis hotel and they had hundreds of light fixtures made by Chihuly--I had never heard of him before but was amazed at each one of them!

Dale Chihuly (and Lalique). I love them. I never get over how beautiful their work is.
