My mom has collected Depression glass longer than I've been alive. Love Chihuly's work. That sculpture in the boat looks like the Kraken won the battle :). If you're ever in South Jersey, be sure to visit WheatonArts in Milleville. It's more historic than modern, but it's all glass!

Hi Vicki--I love Chihuly as well, and first saw his work at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, and then in an exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

I work at Target, and we have a Chihuly sculpture in one of our lobbies. It's orange and red, but otherwise looks just like the white curly one in your pictures.

I collect art glass as well; while I've most recently been satisfying that interest by collecting handmade marbles, I do buy other pieces. My most favorite is by an Australian artist named Lucas Salton. I've never seen his work here in the US, though.


If you're ever up in my part of the country, you absolutely must visit the Corning Museum of Glass.

You definitely need to come out to the Pacific Northwest to the Museum of Glass in Tacoma --just south of Seattle.

Awesome pics.....thanks for sharing!

If you are ever in the Seattle area.....check out his museum! You can easily spend all day....and need to go back the next! :o)


I loved the Dale Chihuly exhibit at the Mint in Charlotte 14 years ago! And I adore laying on the floor in the lobby of the Bellagio in Las Vegas,gazing up at the Chihuly ceiling!


You can watch them live at the Museum of Glass right here:

Sometimes when I need some down time, I just sit and watch - it's mesmerizing.

My calendar this year is a Chihuly - it's gorgeous. This month's piece looks just like a quilt.


I've seen his exhibits in St. Louis and in Nashville . . . incredible, fantastic, and drop dead, amazingly gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing your photos!

Gorgeous pieces!!! I have never heard of Chihuly but will start watching for his work.

There has been a PBS program about chihuly and his process and how they make his creeations. Really, really cool. You should check it out.


If you haven't been, you'd love Venice. Lots of blown glass, and the factories where they do it too.


I absolutely love art glass. It has a strength and delicacy all at the same time that fascinates me. The colors, the shapes, the reflections! In my next life I'm going to be a glass artist.


A while back (like 12 years?) there was a Chihuly exhibit at Kew Gardens - fantastic stuff, all that glass among the plants, especially the cacti, etc. Must dig out some photos - I think they are pre-digital in my collection!


Gorgeous class work! I cannot help but wonder, how do you dust those intricate pieces? I just cannot stand cleaning! lol Thanks for sharing!

I love Chihuly's work too. His exhibit at the de Young in San Francisco was fantastic. They also had a room with his collection of native American baskets.
That ring of contrasting color round the edge of his large free form pieces inspired me to add piping to the edge of my quilts!
