Chihuly Garden and Glass

Dale Chihuly is a glass artist from Seattle.  In the Seattle Center, the site of the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair he has a museum and glass garden with fantastic glass figures set among plants in the garden and displayed with lighting that allows the glass to cast shadows on the walls of the gallery.  The garden is next to the Seattle Space Needle and the glass, at times, frames the needle, and at times reflects it.

I loved the garden but for me the most magic place was under the “Persian Ceiling” where the light coming through the glass casts fantastic patterns of color and light on the walls.
