Chihuly sets Kew on fire

Glass artist, Dale Chihuly, is back at Kew Gardens, for the first time since 2005. I have been lucky enough to see a few pieces of his work before, but this is the first full exhibition I’ve had the chance to get to.

Inside Kew Garden’s Temperate House, London, April 2019

His works are placed around the botanic gardens, some inside, some outside. It opened yesterday, 13 April, and will be on until 27 October. If you are within reach, be sure to add it to your must do list for 2019.

I’ll take you on a longer exploration soon…..

  1. I so love his work! I’ve been fortunate to see it in a number of places including Kew some years ago and an enormous installation at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens a few years ago, featuring some of these very beauties.

    1. His work is amazing, isn’t it! I’ve only seen a few of his pieces before, and missed his previous one in Kew. You’re very lucky to have seen so much.
      The one I really wished I had seen was in Venice – can you imagine ?!!!

  2. We have some “red reeds” at our museum here in Richmond VA
    and in the summer they have green foliage – similar to your installation shots – well not exactly – but red sure does look great with green – and I have never seen those curly things in the last photo – looking forward to your next shares of this cool exhibit.

  3. Oh, brilliant, you’ve seen Chihuly’s glass in person….. I saw a snippet on TV, but it’s not the easiest place for me to access, alas. Looking forward to another post from you, Debbie!
