Chihuly Garden and Glass: Part One

   Tommy and I went and visited the new Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit at the Seattle Center yesterday. It was amazing! Dale Chihuly is glass artist from Seattle, and his pieces are simply breathtaking. Located directly next to the Space Needle, the exhibit features several galleries, a theater, glasshouse and garden.

    I'm going to break up all the photos I took into three posts, otherwise it would be a little overwhelming. I truly wish these photos did the pieces justice, but the attention to detail and size was difficult to really capture. If you have the chance to see them in person, do it.

    The piece below was in the "Sea Life Room," and was probably one of my favorites. So beautiful!

        The next room, "Persian Ceiling," was another favorite of mine. The ceiling was made of clear glass, with glass pieces resembling sea urchins placed on top. This allowed the daylight to shine through the glass and light the whole room.

     Oh, and thanks for all the birthday wishes!


  1. These are lovely photos. I have seen his work at Seattle Center and it is amazing. Lovely post.

  2. Chihuly glass is so beautiful! Have you seen the ceiling of the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas?? My parents got married there, it is beautiful!
