Chihuly's work...

By Chinga
The Sun glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly is at present in Berkeley Square, London.
Dale Chihuly unveiled "The Sun" in London’s Berkeley Square to the world’s press on the 3 April 2014. This amazing 5.5 Metre installation consists of 1,573 hand-blown glass elements, weighs 2,000 Kilos and is illuminated each night.
The Sun has been on view in many prestigious museums and gardens around the world including the New York Botanical Garden (2006), de Young Museum (2008), the Salk Institute for Biological Studies (2010) and the Montreal Museum of Fine Art (2013).
Shots were taken today with my mobile.

“Halcyon Gallery’s unique approach to showcase art outside of the traditional gallery space is extremely compelling as I want as many people as possible to engage, interact and enjoy my art. Public exhibitions are my favorite form of art because so many people get to see them.” Dale Chihuly

How fortunate you are to have seen this. I saw some of his work in Boston at the MFA. He is an incredible glass artist.
