A Trip to Chihuly Garden and Glass

A couple of weekends ago, a girlfriend and I made the 3-hour trek to Seattle for a shopping and art trip. We visited the Chihuly Garden and Glass on a dreary afternoon and we were very impressed. :)

As some of you may know, Dale Chihuly is from Tacoma, Washington and this Seattle museum proudly showcases some of his best work. It is situated right in the Space Needle's shadow and near the entrance to the monorail (which we took a ride on just for fun). We were also allowed to take unlimited photos here-which made me love this place even more!

I caved in and bought a DVD set in the gift shop....maybe a Chihuly project with my students is on the horizon.....


Looking up at the colourful glass in the ceiling.


 






Coincidentally, this woman was wearing all of the chandelier colours. Ha!
Wow!
This needs to be seen!
We managed to capture a rain-free Seattle moment (it started a couple of minutes later).
