Dale Chihuly’s Vibrant Glass Sculpture Garden

Artist Dale Chihuly celebrates the beauty of creative expression both indoors and outdoors in the newly renovated community space at Seattle Center called Chihuly Garden and Glass. The space, which encompasses 1.5 acres of land, includes an exhibition gallery, a garden, and a glasshouse as the centerpiece of the ambitious project. Within each environment of the venue, Chihuly’s wonderfully colorful glass creations heighten the charming and enlivening spirit of the space whose primary focus is to celebrate the community’s creative energy.

Each of Chihuly’s glass sculptures reflect the artist’s own flare for art in an explosion of color, texture, and design. Working primarily with floral motifs in the bulk of his work, Chihuly pays homage to his late mother who was an avid gardener. Finding a career’s worth of inspiration from his mother’s gardening pursuits, the artist clearly knows how to adorn the natural space with his man-made structures that, all at once, draw your attention and complement their environment. Whether his sculptural installations are integrated in the garden or hanging from the ceiling of the glasshouse, they appear to fit right in. In fact, the artist has often been quoted as saying, “I want my work to appear as though it came from nature so if someone found it… they might think it belonged there.”
