Glass Swims On Glass

Glass Swims On Glass
Originally uploaded by sbisson.
More Chihuly glass works, again from his bridge at Tacoma's Museum Of Glass. This time, looking up...

Chihuly's glass ceilings often resemble fantastic seascapes, coral reefs of glass that spread out in inverted splendour. The bridge takes things further, the glass works laid on glass, allowing Chihuly to layer additional forms.

Here, like a mutant "Finding Nemo", pixarian shapes slide over and around glass shelves and jellies...

A wonderful view. One I could have looked at for hours.

It's even better in the summer:

Chihuly Bridge of Glass

I found it really funny, the last time I went, to watch people setting up tripods and standing still, very carefully lining up every shot just so even as I just walked through with my point and shoot pointed upwards, holding down the shutter at random moments.

Yes, we're going to have to come back in the summer. If only to see the starfish at Alki Point...
