Spheres in the Desert

It looks like a path of spheres in the desert leading you and inviting you to walk along to explore what nature and artists have to offer.

This is another Chihuly: The Nature of Glass installation at the Desert Botanical Garden.  This is part of the the "Float Boat" glass art exhibit. The glass spheres are so colorful and each one is distinctive.

They look to me like flamboyant eggs left behind by mythical creatures.

I like the way you shot this one. This is one of my favorite pieces at the Chihuly exhibit at the Desert Botanical Gardens.

Never get tired of Chihuly! Recently on the beach here I met a woman from Seattle, and we had a good conversation about the man and his work. He is so well-known, and justly so. Thanks for your series on the exhibit.

I don't think we can play marble with them ;).
It's sad, that the exhibiton will finally end. I enjoy your Chihuly; The Nature of Glass series.

Yes, it looks lilke a giant Easter egg hunt! Chihuly certainly gets around. We have his huge glass flowers in our museum lobby. I did a post last summer I think.

I agree with Brattcat. I think if you follow this trail of eggs you will find a group of rainbow colored, polka dotted, dragons frolicking around.

How curious! I think this is more Alice in Wonderland than the other post! ;-)

Very beautiful photo. I like the random colors of the spheres and the way they are arranged to look natural.

at first i thought the picture was a macro picture of marbles, then i realized they are much larger.

Very beautiful spheres in an unusal setting.

At first glance I thought they were Easter eggs...

Delightful!

Vogon Poet said...

I took them for giant marbles...

Such nice colors Julie!

What I like about Chihuly is watching the process of creation. I would love to visit his studio, I would consider it the opportunity of a lifetime. Great post just before Easter.

Fascinating colors against the desert sands. Now I am anxious to play petanque at a local park.

The spheres are gorgeous by themselves, but placed in the desert and surrounded by succulents look even more fantastic!

I would seriously love to see this exhibition, it looks so incredibly interesting and so very different to the climate and plants we have here. I love these glass spheres!

lisasarsfield said...

Wow, very cool. Would love to see this in person!

This is a fascinating exhibit and thank you for bringing it to us. The spheres and the succulents are so incongruous . . . I would never have thought of putting them together . . . but then that is why I am the audience.
