A stunning composition with these gorgeous colors and forms of Chihuly!! I love how they stand out against the background.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Steven. This was, as you can imagine, his most flamboyant exhibit that day. smile
C'est magnifiquement présenté avec de beaux reflets sur la table.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine. The mirrored surface certainly adds to this exhibit.
I like the big yellow "tree" i the middle!
Ginnie Hart: Tha centerpiece, Elizabeth, was something else!
J'adore! What a talent he has this creator! and the colors are wonderful
Ginnie Hart: It's easy to see why he's the world's most famous glass blower, Marie! Merci.

I like the bright colours here, Ginnie and you did a great job with presenting this "garden". Love the reflections.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. I'm so glad we were able to see it together!

Oh crikey! What stunning collection. I especially like the tall greenish piece.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Alan. This is Chihuly at his most flamboyant self!

I understand that you have been mesmerised by this glass work - a beautiful image!
(My PC is still not in order, I cannot reply on your comments.))
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Philine. So sorry your PC is still giving your challenges. Hopefully you'll be able to get it sorted out soon.

Glass blowing - more mind blowing Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Chris. Watching Astrid learn how to blow glass all those years ago brings new meaning to this exhibition for us both. smile
J'aime vraiment beaucoup ..cela me plairait bien d'en posséder un mais j imagine que leur prix est en relation avec leur beauté Merci
Ginnie Hart: There are definitely some things you can buy, Claudine, but yes, the price is quite high. smile
Must have been some garden Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly what I thought, Bill!

A super stunning piece of glass work and very well photographed Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chad. It too an entire room to display it...just like a garden!

The Chihuly's you and Astrid are showing leaves me mixed up. The colour in the pictures, like this one, are striking and make for excellent pictures. But I will never have one in my house.
Ginnie Hart: I won't either, Louis, but it's fun to go see what it looks like elsewhere. smile
Très beau travail de souffleur de verre ! Jolie compo haute en couleurs.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It's enough to blow the mind, Pascale! Merci.

what a beautiful photo of this glass work Ginnie

bravo !!
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Willy.
Absolutely fascinating!
Did they place his glass sculptures on a transparent glass ceiling at the museum?

I have seen such display installation in London a couple of times. It's just so magical to walk underneath the glass ceiling.
Ginnie Hart: Not on a ceiling, LC, but on a mirror that made it double the pleasure!
Wat een wirwar...
Je zal dat toch maar moeten afstoffen...maar dat het aan zijn moeder`s tuin doet denken, geloof ik graag
Fijn weekend, net terug van midweek Ouddorp
Ginnie Hart: I don't want to THINK about having to dust any of his work, Marjolein!!!!!!!!!! smile
WOW! This is stunning. The vibrant colors and shapes against the dark background is superb.
Ginnie Hart: Stunning in every way, Ruthie, yes., Thanks.
This is such a joyful image, Ginnie. Much needed in these times.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly, and YES!
This is beautiful glass work. I'm very impressed with the full set of images of this artists work on your other blog.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you for checking out In Soul, Brian. His work is indeed astounding.
The effect of an under water Tropicana, the glass work blows the mind.
Ginnie Hart: You are so right, Martin. It's hard to take it all in!
wow it looks like alien creatures from a Tom Cruise movie!! but much more beautiful smile amazing shot, sister!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elaine. I'm sure we all could come up with great stories to accompany this exhibit! smile
in his museum there are many such gardens. it has an indoor area, an outdoor area and a restaurant. I so love his work.
Ginnie Hart: We're all so fortunate to see ANY of his works, Mary, but to see his own museum must be amazing.
Truly lovely! And pricey, I would guess!
Ginnie Hart: I would guess so, Tom!
