If you aren't familiar with Dale Chihuly, get on over to http://www.chihuly.com/, and look at everything. Amazing. I really like the Ikebana in acrylic.

it's kind of odd though because the recent chihuly pieces aren't really made by him because he is almost blind now or something like that. i can't remember the exact story, but chihuly is quite the famous guy in the northwest. in anchorage, there was a chihuly exhibit a few years back and it was a huge deal. and he has a glass school for underprivileged youth in the tacoma area.

"Even though he no longer blows glass himself--a 1976 accident left him blind in one eye--he draws and sketches the designs for his creations and oversees a team of about 40 glass blowers in his studio in Seattle."

Thank you, that's really interesting. I hadn't bothered to dig any deeper than the pictures I found.
