glass art

Wow, talk about fail! I thought I posted this ages ago and I only realized that I didn't because I was trying to find the photos again!

I saw the Dale Chihuly exhibit up in Boston last spring, but didn't take these photos of the exhibit, these were found online.  I really like Chihuly's work, back in the day he totally redefined glass as art, but out of all of his work I find his "baskets" the most inspiring.  Working and living in the Pacific Northwest, he fell in love with Pendleton trading blankets and Native American basketry (who can blame him?), and took inspiration in creating a series of glass baskets.

Cool right?

For more on the baskets go here.

window shopping: rings

Found these rings online the other week. 
I think I'm drawn to them because of the work I've been doing with stained glass. 
All these geometric shapes!

Find them here at mociun.
