While I normally picture large glass sculptures when I think of Chihuly, he also has a number of smaller pieces on display at the Seattle Center exhibit. The gift shop actually has several for sale. Had I had an extra six or seven thousand dollars lying around, I would have brought one home.
Several more nesting bowls of a different type were for sale in the gift shop.
Chihuly had a fascination with Native American crafts including baskets and blankets. A number of pieces were shown with Indian baskets including the three below.
Chihuly’s interest in ocean creatures led to a realistic depiction of sea creatures in glass.
I’ll conclude my Seattle Center Chihuly series with several more colorful and creative sculptures from the gift shop.
