For those who have never been to the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden http://www.dbg.org and those not familiar with the works of world renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly, http://www.chihuly.com/biography.aspx I have attempted to capture some of the current display which opened here on November 10th.
Chihuly’s biography makes very interesting reading, and although due to a mishap several years ago, he no longer physically produces his art, he has tutored others to bring his designs in blown glass to fruition.
This display, his second at the DBG, will be on display until mid-May of 2014, will allow me many opportunities to return and try to capture his mastery of this art form. I try to not only show his creations as they are, but add my own dimension to their visual beauty.
My intent is to return several times to the DBG to see each piece in from different perspectives and in different light.
