Re: Chihuli Installment at Phoenix Botanical Gardens
In reply to lambert4, Feb 22, 2014

Thanks for sharing these. My other passion is hand-blown glass and I have a collection from over the years. It's become prohibitively expensive to buy now - even when it's not Chihuli - and makes photography look like a hobby for poor people. But I still enjoy going down to a local glass workshop where you can watch the glassmakers  blowing art glass on a Saturday.

The Chihuli is just amazing - the skill and craftsmanship that goes into those installations is incredible. The style is a bit over the top for my taste but when you look at it like this in situ it must be breathtaking. I've never seen an exhibition of Chihuli - one more thing to do before it's too late
