Blue Heaven

Palace Blue Chandelier by Dale Chihuly c. mid 1990's.

Dale Chihuly has taken the Renaissance idea of the artist's workshop into the modern age employing many skilled glassblowers and students who help him create and assemble his massive art installations.

If in Pittsburgh visit the installation at the Phipps Botanical Garden.

Each one of those curly pieces is seperate and they are joined together with wire on a steel frame.
