Dale Chihuly


In my last post on London I mentioned that there was a Chihuly at the V&A and my sister-in-law asked what I was talking about.  As my St. Louis readers know, Dale Chihuly is an artist who works primarily with glass.  I fell for his whimsical work when he did an installation at the Missouri Botanical Gardens and am always happy to stumble upon his work -which  Scotty and I have  in various cities in our travels and it always makes me smile and think about the MOBOT exhibit – which you can read about here.  I loved walking through the Missouri Botanical Garden and seeing his sculptures which always added a pop of color and fun.  And I find that he does a very good job of integrating his work with the surrounding landscapes.  It enhances it – and is never jarring.  Here’s some pictures from the MO Gardens:

    I just stumbled across this post…and your lovely blog. I am a Kiwi living in St Louis who LOVES MOBOT…and was sad to say goodbye to it this morning, we will be in St Andrews, Scotland next week to start a new chapter of our lives…so as a member of a Kiwi/British/Irish/US family in the north, I will be checking in here from time to time to see if you have some musings to inspire our Scottish adventures! Nice to meet you.
