Dale Chihuli Rocks my World
I'm going to have to go on record as officially disagreeing with McH, who had the nerve to publicly mock Dale Chihuli's artistic genius on her blog. As I once worked a cocktail party in SLC which featured his work, and then watched the documentary called "Chihuli over Venice" about his glass being blown all over Venice, I've been a big fan for a long time. The pink glass tree in Abravanel Hall is glorious in my eyes (take that, McH). :) The flower ceiling found in the Bellagio Hotel in Vegas? Breathtaking.The glass all over Venice? Nothing less than amazing. I realize that art is in the eye of the beholder, but I've always just loved blown glass of any kind, so perhaps I'm a tad bit biased? Regardless, I respectfully disagree with McH's Chihuli bashing. To me, he is a genius and I can never get enough.
