Word Nerd Word Is: GLASS
Glass! It can be used for so many things, drinking glasses, eyeglasses, windows and art.
At the St. Louis Botanical Gardens I discovered the artist Dale Chihuly. He works with glass. If you would like to know more about him check out the Dale Chihuly page it provides visitors with Chihuly’s bio, over 40 of his works, exclusive articles, and up-to-date Chihuly exhibition listings.
This grand Chihuly glass piece hangs in the entry of the Botanical Gardens.
Here’s a close-up. So intricate!
I love the colors he used in the glass. It must have taken him a long time to get all of those pieces connected the way he wanted them. Working with words is much easier I think than standing over a hot fire waiting for the glass to melt.
