The Vases

We saw these vases at a Dale Chihuly show in Richmond. I knew that he made enormous glass objects, so these small vases were a delightful surprise. It looks like his theme was putting one inside the other. Kind of a vase for a vase.






“Jesus took Peter, James, and John and led them up a high mountain. His appearance changed from the inside out, right before their eyes. His clothes shimmered, glistening white, whiter than any bleach could make them.
Mark 9
