Judy~Time Out for Family and Art

Not much in the way of knitting or stitching happened this weekend as we had company, Dick's brother and our sister-in-law.  We took advantage of their visit to go see the relatively new Chihuly garden and glass exhibit at the Seattle Center. It's wonderful!

I loved this ceiling and the way the colors reflect off the walls.

This is one of two glass-filled boats floating in water.

A beautiful arrangement of glass flowers fills the upper part of the conservatory which Chihuly designed.  As you can see, the flowers also frame the Space Needle which is nearby.

This glass tree is located in the conservatory for the upcoming holidays and is filled with golden cherubs.

The gardens outside are lovely also. The pieces of glass are skillfully situated among the plants and are very interesting. The glass just glows in the sunlight, and I loved the way the log is placed among the pieces.

Every so often there's a piece that reflects the Needle in all its glory.

Hope you enjoyed the photos and have a great week!

Who need stitching when you have Chihuly to gaze at? Thank you for sharing, I adore his work.

The Chihuly display looks amazing! Good to let your creative side rest, and stimulate the thinking side!
