In which Sarah Louise goes to Phipps (Pt 1 of ?) [with spelling corrections]

Well, I'm not up for a long post with lotsa pictures, but this was my favorite scene at Phipps and believe me, I took lotsa pictures of this one scene, from many vantage points. But I figured I'd give you a little something. The artist, Chihuly (which I'm sure I spelled wrong) (Thanks CatStevens!), goes from place to place, doing art installations in glass. It's very cool. I was enamored with this boat full of colorful balls. It's just so playful.



And now I'm off to do some laundry. I might take a drive later. Lily and I had a lovely lunch at the Waterfront Pizzeria Unos and then we walked along the river. I'm going to the moon tomorrow. Oh, I mean Moon Twp. For training. And I think free lunch. I better double check on that. I promise more pictures to come.

Hey! This artist was just down here in SoFla....Chihuly. Yes, very cool. I'll have to send you the link of the botanical gardens where he was at.

He was also on the local news because someone STOLE some of the glass art and tried to replace it with painted PVC. Craziness.

Beautiful work. I really like your pic!

The neighbour thing sounds very intriguing.... I think I like your version of "reality" then anything on TV.

And nice boat with colourful balls - is the boat "life size" or smaller and are those balls glass or some other material?

Sarah Louise said...

Cat: PVC? As if!

Meg: The boat is life size and the balls are glass. It was the most magical thing I've ever seen. You'll see, I took like a thousand pictures.

Chihuly is awesome. He had an exhibit in Reading recently as well. One of the things I love about doing my pottery is that it is next to the glass studio and I am making friends with glass blowers. It is neat to see that process!
