Those are beautiful - I especially like the second two as the glass seems finer than in the first one, although i love the colour choice in that one

i love chihuhly - and i love these!!!

How big are they?


also, I lived in Akron, Ohio last year, and on the University of Akron campus in front of their Polymer Sciences building there is a chihuhly sculpture, but it's really different from his organic flowing works, like what you modeled yours from... it's more crystalized, and angular. It actually looks like a GIANT rock candy stick!


Definitely digging the mounted pieces... I like the contrast between the angular base and organic forms growing from them!
I can't even say enough about how cool and beautiful these are!

It's funny, I saw the thumbnail in the "Hot New Projects" and thought, "Did someone take a picture of a Chihuly?"  These are absolutely stunning, love the third one.  Would love to know how big they are.  Do you have a picture of one with something for scale? Beautiful work.

hi everyone! thanks for all the great comments!

i don't have a picture for scale, but they are all very small. the first one is about 5 inches tall, the second ones are 5.5 ish inches wide, and the last one is about 6 inches tall.
