Through the Looking Glass -

by Dale Chihuly

Last week I took a field trip into the MFA Boston with my good friends Brenda and Deb. 
A treat the whole day was.  
And the Chihuly exhibit is a must see!

I didn't have a camera with me so  these pictures are unedited taken right off my phone. 
The colors in real life are amazing.

  If you're not careful and forget to look down, you might miss the secondary exhibit. 
The reflection.

And then the sharp contrast of this room where you only look up.

You will never look at an ordinary piece of glass the same way! 
Go see it.

I love Chihuly glass! I got to see an exhibit in Oklahoma City once and it was stunning. So much color and movement and beauty in the glass forms.

I saw that show when it first opened. It is amazing. I am going to go back in a couple of weeks since I really want my parents to see it....

That boat......

And the birch trees with the purple reeds.

His work never ceases to amaze and delight!

Love Chihuly's glass. I met him in the 90s at a lecture in Chic--fun guy. Have you seen the Bellagio in Vegas?

I've been meaning to get to this exhibit. I think you've just inspired me to make a definite plan!
