Well we just got back from an amazing whirlwind road trip to Washington State. We ate, we shopped, we toured, we drove & amodst all of that we got some culture! These pics are from an amazing installations at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma.
Dale Chihuly is a very well known, well respected glass artisan and he created the Bridge of glass seen here! Truly gorgeous individual pieces, but when you see them 'en mass'...as a collection... the beauty of his work is almost overwhelming.
I say almost but what I really mean is that it WAS an overwhelming experience. As a humble bead maker...I can only imagine creating the enchanting scrolled & fluted glass architecture seen at the museum.
I highly recommend a trip there. Even my teenaged son found it spectacular! For more info... http://www.museumofglass.org/
