The Desert Goes Glass

Friday morning was spent in the desert north of Phoenix hunting 'Desert Lavender' (Hyptis emoryi). The day was clear even while being buffeted by our forever blowing desert Spring winds.

Not a drop of rain in sight.

But some unusual glass showed up!

Chihuly is on exhibit at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, Arizona.

Wow. Very interesting juxposition. I really thought it was neat. And the DBG has reworked many of the natural exhibits making the desert even MORE breathtaking! I loved it. I'll show more pictures over the coming week.

The Chihuly Exhibit runs through May 31st, 2009. Go if you can!

The desert is a natural extension of the inner silence of the body. If humanity’s language, technology, and buildings are an extension of its constructive faculties, the desert alone is an extension of its capacity for absence, the ideal schema of humanity’s disappearance.

I love Dale Chihuly! What an incredible idea--glass in the desert. I was just cataloging some of my mother's vases which look just like the blue long stemmed sprays.

Thanks for sharing--too much to do to make it to Phoenix before next year! Hugs to you and Luna.
