Imagine a world filled with brilliantly coloured organic shapes entirely made of glass. You’ve just pictured the world created by glass artist Dale Chihuly.
This is my first week back to my computer, after almost a month of visiting family and friends in Canada. The trip was a total of 6 flights, countless hours of driving, eating our body weights in food (possibly several times over) and being surrounded by people we love. Wonderful.
And while I have a mile-long list of Belgium related posts I’m dying to share with you (including museums, food, a charming hotel, and a late night night trek in the woods to listen for mating deer, I kid you not), jetlag has me shattered.
So, instead you get to look at some pretty (I hope) pictures of beautiful glass sculptures, by one of my favourite artists – Dale Chihuly.
We hadn’t planned to see a Chihuly exhibition, while in Canada (or any art exhibitions for that matter), but we ended up having a last-minute stopover in Montreal on our way to Winnipeg. When I spotted a poster for the show, on the way from the airport to the city centre, I knew we had our plans for the afternoon.
So, while I recover from sleep deprivation, I give you my photographic impressions of the Dale Chihuly’s exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts – Utterly Breathtaking.
I hope you enjoyed this colourful interlude and we’ll be back Friday with more goodness from Belgium.
