L...is for Light

Artist Dale Chihuly focuses on the element of light in his glass art.
Glass is one of the few materials that light goes through causing the colors to be intense.
In any setting the color , form, and light unite to create something magical.
Dale Chihuly has created a unique thing: abstract art accepted by people not in the art world.

fascinating - I keep hearing about this type of glass on various blogs but never seen any anywhere hereabouts.

Carolyn Ford said...

Wow! I have such similar photos from the same artist! I love them...I saw them in Las Vegas in a gallery. He also did the ceiling in the lobby of the Bellagio, there. Great captures, Carol!

What beautiful artwork!
Thanks for sharing this artist and his work!

Paula Scott said...

I never thought about the fact that the colors are more intense because light passes through glass. What a wonderful post! And, I never thought about how Dale's art is appreciated by those who are not normally art lovers.
What a great post!
