Out Of The Blue

Several years ago, we went to an exhibit of the famous glass artist Dale Chihuly. It was amazing. He makes huge glass sculptures that hang from the ceiling, and calls them Chandeliers. Here are the pictures as we approached his blue one.







Blue is a cold and retiring colour, and its effect upon the mind is of a quiet, soothing nature. It is symbolical of divinity, intelligence, sincerity, and tenderness.

A wonderful post Ginny. I have been fortunate enough to see the exhibits of glass artist Dale Chihuly. My first one was in London several years ago, a 'tree' in a park near our hotel. I didn't realize it was his and once I knew, thanks to your blog with his pieces shared, his beautiful work is unmistakable.
