Final Mille Fiori post............
I decided to do a collage, because I could post individual photos of Mille Fiori for days. It was my favorite exhibit and I took lots of photos of it. An encounter with Dale Chihuly's works is always a spectacular reminder that glass is not just something to see through or drink out of.
"From the Italian for a “thousand flowers,” this unique series is comprised of a variety of works. Components of the Mille Fiori series resemble organic shapes such as the antherium or fern, or the intuitive resemblance of a heron’s lengthy body or the foot of a frog. They are sometimes arranged in single elements or grouped together with as many as twelve installations. Combined, these installations truly create a mystical garden of glass." ~ Reprinted text from here: http://www.chihulyworkshop.com/chihuly-mille-fiori.html
