[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a close shot of a portion of a glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly, which is hanging from the glass-domed entry to the Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens. Chihuly's work was on exhibit at Phipps last year, and several pieces have been left on permanent display.

Chihuly is widely acknowledged as one of preeminent glass artists in the world. He lost an eye in an automobile accident in 1976 but continued to sculpt with glass until he suffered a shoulder injury in 1979 which prevented him from holding a glass blowing pipe. Rather than retire from the art, he continued to conceive sculptures while hiring others to create them, becoming more a "choreographer" than a hands-on artist.

Hi Sandy,
A cheerful image, great colours of yellow. A fine composition of glass well captured and presented.

Hi Sandy,

Very cool photo. I certainly would not want to be responsible for hanging this sculpture!! No way!!

Very colorful with the swirls and different patterns in the glass. Kind of reminds me of the old fashioned candy. Do you have a view of the sculpture in its entirety? Would also like to see that. :) Lisa

Excellent work on this Sandy! Marvelous sharpness and smooth tones in the glass! Interesting tight crop! Beautiful work!

Thanks for the interesting note Sandy.
