One of the great pleasures from this weeks trip to Arizona was a visit to the exhibit "Chihuly: Nature of Glass" at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix. Having seen many of Chihuly's pieces before, I was not prepared for the immensity of what I was to see. Not only was the gardens a perfect fit for his work, but the day was as great as it could get with temps in the 70's. It truly is amazing how an ordinary space can be transformed through one artists vision. Overall, the piece that spoke the most to me was the "Blue and Purple Boat".
And then the "Blue Polyvitro Crystals"
And then...... Sorry, I could go on and on about all the beautiful pieces.
There were also some natural surprises as well with some of the blooming plants.
