Abel & I love this artist's glasswork. We saw his exhibit 2 years ago at Fairchild Tropical Gardens & it amazed us. We've seen pieces in different museums & his studio at the Bellagio hotel this summer. So when we saw he had an exhibit here at the deYoung museum in San Fran we knew we had to see it. His art is amazing....I had to show you a few pics so you could see what I mean.

It was completely different than the display at the Gardens. Remember, it's all blown glass. The colors are breathtaking.
The display that resembles the Native American baskets was one of my favorites simply because it was so different than anything I'd seen before.

There was a room with many pieces layed in the ceiling- it makes you want to lay down & never get up again. It was really cool.
We were so inspired & enjoyed it so much- we are planning to visit Chihuly's hometown (Tacoma, Washington) sometime while we're in Cali. They have a glass museum with a hot shop where you can watch other glass blowers work. Chihuly also has pieces around the town in various places as well as a whole bridge filled with his art. Hope you enjoyed the slideshow! Find what inspires you and share it with us.
