A field of glass

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey
The Bellagio is a beautiful hotel. Not only is it home to the wonderful fountains, but also to a unique creation that is installed in the ceiling of the lobby: Fiori de Como, or “flowers of the lake.” World-renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly created thousands of brightly colored, hand-blown, glass sculptures and brought them all together in a magnificent work of art. Larger on one end than the other, it spills over the ceiling in a riot of color, demanding your full attention.

To me it has the shape of a huge flower basket [narrower at the bottom and flaring out at the top] that is spilling over with flowers. In actuality, in the eyes of its creator, he sees it as a kind of sea form. Whatever you see when you look at it, you are bound to see beauty.

Stunning pics! Thank you, Lynne!

I love his work! These are drop dead gorgeous.

Last year I got to show a bunch of 6th graders one of his canvases.  He works his design ideas in acrylic first.  The detail and the wonderful texture was just yummy.  I wanted to sneak that out under my jacket…too bad it was so big!

OH my gosh, wasn’t that just amazing. I have a shot of that ceiling too that I use as a background on my desktop sometimes! So glad you got to see it, and you got some amazing shots of the whole section. grin
