-- Dallas weddings aren’t the only thing I love to photograph – Venice glassblowing is something that I was drawn to when I visited Italy years ago. So when I found out that the Dallas Arboretum (http://www.dallasarboretum.org/)
was displaying Dale Chihuly’s (http://www.chihuly.com/)
work of art – I knew it was an opportunity I could not miss. My husband and daughter and I went on a day trip and had an amazing day of it. I would recommend this botanical garden filled glass blown art to the art lovers out there. Here are some images to get a taste of what I photographed at the Arboretum. The Boats were my favorite that were designed in Finland and were filled with different glass shapes and Niijima Floats. These were inspired by fishing floats that Chihuly collected as a child. The combination of glass within nature was gorgeous. Most of the sculptures were designed to mix in nature and were in the forms of the Sun, Star, Boat, Herons, Reeds and more. There were stunning waterfalls adorned with the purple blown glass in front that created a great display. The blue reeds were made especially for the Aboretum in Dallas and were sprinkled among the botanical garden. The yellow Icicle Tower stood high above the trees and stood over 30 feet tall. The Persians were floating over the water while the fish swam below the piece and glowed in the sun.
