Inspiration: Dale Chihuly

On my trip to Vegas a few months ago I was really inspired by Dale Chihuly. If you haven't heard of him I don't know where you have been his stuff is incedible! Just look at the photo above. How beautiful!!! check out his online gallery here.

I love the transarency that glass has and the amazing colors you can create. I have always been curious about glass art and for my birthday my mom surprised me with a lesson from Live Laugh Love Glass, we had a great time and we just got our paper weights back.
I like how the colors look with light showing through. My favorite part is the bubble that I got centered perfectly. Glass is a medium that would take a lot of time to learn and perfect. It was fun to finally try it out.
Here is another look at my paper weight. Next time I think i want to try a float or a bowl.

You should try working with glass. It would be a fun date night or a mother daughter date like we had. Valentine's Day is coming up, it would create unique memories rather than just a dinner and the present is already included! No shopping required :)

Love Joy Peace,

Kristiann

Thanks! I think when you try new things it can help you in every aspect of your art. Now I just need to figure out the next thing to try. Do you have any ideas?
