As I mentioned in my last post about the Chihuly Exhibition at the New York Botanical Garden, it is so awe-inspiring that I took quite a number of photos and I would break my post up into 2 sections. If you didn't get a chance to read the first post you can click here. If you did get a chance to read the post you can proceed with the eye candy. Enjoy!
Persian Pond above is created as a fantasy garden. I kept my daughter in the photo as a scale comparison. Chihuly learned a method creating Persians in which a wrap or mold is used to create an undulating pattern on the surface of the glass. They look so fragile and paper thin, it seems unbelievable that these are glass objects delicately balancing on the water.
I have asked many people what their favorite piece is. Do you have a favorite? I think mine might be the one above, the Glasshouse Fiori. The way the glass art is placed among the plants is so organic, I can feel it moving, dancing. The Chihuly exhibit at the NYBG is available to see until October 29th. It is a short ride from Grand Central Station in Manhattan. I hope to make it to Chihuly nights where the glass is lit up. I think this would be a whole other experience.

Have a great day!
