Boston Museum of Art--Chihuly: Through the Looking Glass Exhibit...
Inspiration for fabric art comes from many places. I was truly inspired by this work. I'm hoping to make some fiber art inspired by this beautiful exhibit. Maybe you will too.
One room was filled entirely with spectacular pieces of glass. It was arranged sort of like a forest with lots of undergrowth and a huge orange and yellow "tree." All of the following pictures are of the glass in that room with the exception of the last three.
This is a close up of the orange and yellow "tree."
This is a glass boat--fabulous. It was almost as fun to observe the people at this exhibit as it was to view the pieces themselves. Literally, mouths were hanging open...mouths were covered with hands...and cameras couldn't click pictures fast enough.
One room contained a purple glass forest. The pieces of glass were actually coming out of real logs.
