Dale Chihuly learned about blowing glass in Venice, Italy and now creates avant-garde pieces, which are simply pieces of art. Incredible pieces of art. This garden exhibit of his pieces has been traveling to various locations since 2001 and now the Chihuly exhibit is at the Denver Botanic Gardens until the end of November. ...It's most definitely worth the trip. (The exhibit is supposed to be awesome at night as well... all lit up!)
I enjoyed seeing how the placement of the different pieces were placed... often it seemed that the nearby flowers matched/complemented the glass blown pieces. Just beautiful. : ) Below are some photos of just a bit of what we saw:
I can't get over how many pieces there are in this exhibit. It's incredible!
Reflected in the lily pond:
This one reminds of a Dr. Seuss tree! ...If we ever lived in a world with Dr. Seuss trees!
