Chihuly St Pete


Curiously my most successful pictures came from my iPhone. Minimum human interference...
 These cups Chihuly calls macchia from the Italian for forest (Think maquis in French):


At the Dali Museum's exhibit of Dali and Duchamp I noticed Marcel Duchamp struggled to show motion in his art. Visiting this place shortly thereafter I was struck by how easily and effectively Chihuly has done just that with these representations of what looked like water lilies flowing on the walls of the chamber as though pushed by currents of water. Duchamp could have learned a lot from this glass artist.

These translucent images of sea shells were my favorite display. So I took several pictures...
