It’s easy to take photos of the sculptures themselves, but remember that these beautiful interlopers were dropped into a beautiful desert setting. (I initially typed “dessert” setting. That “s” makes all the difference. But the desert view is as sweet in its own way as dessert.) So let’s take a look at what you might see if you were walking along with me. Some of the inhabitants are as amazing as the glass and certainly a lot more dangerous.



Into view.

Tomorrow we’ll take some different looks at these sculptures that look for al the world like glamorous matches all alight at the same time.

    Thank you, again for these beauties

    Agree on the comment ao pretty – and agree on outdoors sculptures themselves, they aren’t the matter most – it’s more the life they creates in their surroundings. 🙂

  3. Taking pictures is easy – taking good ones is a skill and an art. Thanks for sharing your artistry.

    Icing on the cake! Eye candy! Dessert indeed.

    “… certainly a lot more dangerous…”
    Which begs the question, How did these amazing art pieces get installed in the midst of such long spines & desertscapes?!?!

  6. JT Twissel says:

    Birthday desert cakes with candles on top!

  7. Really stunning and totally unexpected. I’m sure/:)

  8. Those remind me of those red hot poker flowers/plants. The placement of them here is really neat.

    I’m glad I’m not the one that had to “plant” those sculptures among the thorns!

    they do look like matches, Janet
    and the “peeking” once was my fav of this post – so nice

  11. Jet Eliot says:

    Truly a joy to see these Chihuly sculptures in the cacti garden, Janet. They look a lot like the red hot poker plants that are vibrant right now in Calif. Thanks so much for the Chihuly tour.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
