Botanical Glass Exhib,
As always, your photo collages are just so wonderful!!!! We should start planning a mini spring fling here in Detroit, like we were kinda talkin' 'bout.
WOW ~ Beautiful! So are they actual pictures transferred magically onto glass? I'm so curious. 'hugs from afar'
Did you get to see them in person, amazing.Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams
The glasswork is amazing! The colours, textures and design is lovely combined with the greenery and flowers! Thanks for sharing!
This is gorgeous - I love glass botanicals. We visited Dale Chihuly's glass museum last year. It was so inspiring.
Goodness Joey, that's amazing! Have you read Clara and Mr. Tiffany? It explains so much about glass blowing and how they made the windows and lamps. Thought of it while I was perusing your photos. They look like stained glass.~~Dee
Wonderful, I wish I could have seen it 'live'.I saw something similar a few years ago at Kew Gardens.Just one day left of March Joey...bye bye winter and hallo April and spring ;-)xoxo Tyra
Last Spring we visited friends in Mesa, AZ. There was Dale Chihuly glass works all over their local desert museum. It was beautiful - but when I was in the mood to see the blooms, the glass would often outstage. This museum was certainly artistically designed in many ways - and your photos are again, very special. :-)
What a great exhibition! I could have spent many hours there. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you, dear Monica. Yes, Sunday was delightful and agree, we should/must all meet.Beautiful glass sculpture combined with exotic botanical, Cher. Click on Furnace Design Studio and Planterra Conservatory for more info.Yes, Jen, a delightful exhibit. Wish you lived near. So much to see ... so much to shoot. Like Monica, you would have so enjoyed not only the stunning exhibit but quality time with me :)Yes, yes, yes, dear Tyra! I'm more than ready ... bring it on! Wish you lived near ... I would have so enjoyed sharing the event, actually any event, with you. Happy April, dear friend :)Thank you kindly, Shirley. It was indeed lovely.So I have heard, Malinda. Welcome and thank you. Happy April :)Fortunate it was near, Dee. Both Monica and I thoroughly enjoyed the lovely shared afternoon. I am making note of Clara and Mr. Tiffany ... right up my alley. I have lots of treasured stained glass in my home. Happy April gardening :)Thank you, dear Shady. As many have mention, Dale Chihuly glass works is amazing ... a must on my list to see. Happy April :)Happy to see you and indeed it was, One. So much to see ... a true delight.
Yes Joey, they are spectacular! If seen in these collages, someone might interchange the real from the mimic. They might be very difficult to make, can you give some idea how costly they are?
What beautiful works of art. I would love to see that exhibit.
Great fun !The glass art looks like Dale Chihulys. Love his work.
Beautiful collages Joey. Wish I could see this exhibit in person.
How truly beautiful. The glass sculptures are stunning, and yet still appear organic enough, at least in your photographs, that I had to look a second time at few to realize they weren't plants! Truly extraordinary!
Andra, they are spectacular ... small works in the thousands ... big in the big thousands $$$!Not too late, Zoey ... exhibit on until 4/3. Worth the trip .. run down ... :) BTW ... how's the snow? We are heading up north tomorrow ...That's what everyone says, Patsi. So, happy April gardening, fun friend :)How fun to have you beside me with our cameras, Kala! Great fun :)A lovely day, Clare, and delighted it was near and able to incorporate it in our upside/down life. Happy April :)
What fun Joey! I love the magic you made with these whimsical glass blooms in your collages. Master at it as always. Beautiful!
How kind, Carol. Thank you. A lovely way to spend an afternoon.
Beautiful collages!! My favorite of his works are the mushrooms ~ they are both gorgeous and have a wonderful whimsy to them.
My favorite too, Sweetbay. Thank you.
oooh, this is very very cool!
Indeed very cool, Wendy :)
Your photos are so beautiful ~ I can only imagine what it would be like to see the glass and blooms in person. I'm going to have to keep an eye out for a display like this in our state ~ at least I hope to see something similar someday. Happy Spring Joey! I hope you've had a bit of warm weather there?
Indeed an amazing show, Kathleen. Thank you for your kind comment. Happy spring :)
This photos are very nice. The plants are really nice. Some of these are unknown for me. I think conservatories are good for plants.
Welcome and thank you, Conservatories. Your site is awesome! Wish, wish, wish ...
