Pink Mirrored Mexican Horns

Such beautiful translucent pink glass art work nestled in the cactus at the Desert Botanical Garden.  

This photo is a part of "Mirrored Mexican Horns," by Chihuly in The Nature of Glass, which ends on May 31, 2009.  I have taken lots of photos so Chihuly will live on for many more months on my site.

Tomorrow I will show you the full photo of this particular exhibit. Happy Easter!

Such a good choice for Easter, Julie. Enlarging the picture reveals the detail of the pink glass woven with gold. Lovely.

I think your photos yesterday and today have finaly given me something to crticize about the Chihuly pieces at the Desert Botanical Garden. I don't think that you could take a picture of a bee on a flower like your post yesterday using a Chihuly glas flower like you showed today.

To see glass making process is one of my dream. It's amazing how they shaped very hot melted glass into various kinds of things. Julie, you could have shot the whole part of this "Mirrored Mexican Horns", I started to think this is fingers of a very fungky alien.

Those are very beautiful, but I don't understand the Mexican "horn" reference or what it means.
