Chihuly Glass Exhibition

Dale Chihuly is a world renowned Blown Glass artist from the Pacific Northwest. You can learn more about him at his website, or the regular channels like Wikipedia and YouTube.

He has numerous permanent and roving displays of his work around the world, and right now some of his work is at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. We wandered over there yesterday courtesy of Debbie and Dana to see the sights and wander the grounds as the sun went down.

His work is very intricate and pretty.
But becomes even prettier after dark (and when you can take a pic without it being photobombed).

There were several pieces placed throughout the gardens, and we wandered around an saw all of them in the light and after dark once the accent lighting was turned on.

FYI, Dale Chihuly is 80 years old. There’s hope for all of us yet.
He has started to work in Neon, but the regular glass is more impressive in our unlearned opinion.
Chihuly generally leaves a piece behind once the exhibitions are done. This was from a previous year.

And the Botanical Garden itself has quite a few great sights, and a massive collection of Cactus that we wandered around for a couple of hours.

Look closer!
Lots going on inside this particular Cactus.
All photos except this one taken by Sylvia. She’s getting good at this Photo stuff.

Now back to hiking, and softball, and pickleball and….
