Images From Dale Chihuly’s Glass House

A few weeks ago I was in Seattle for a wedding and I did something that I have been wanting to do for years… I went to visit Dale Chihuly’s Glass House.

For those unfamiliar with Dale Chihuly he is probably the most well known glass blower in the world. He was in a car accident 1976 which left him blind in his left eye, he continued blowing glass then in 1979 he was in a body surfing accident and injured his shoulder. He decided to take a step back and instruct other glass blowers on how to blow glass and create his visions. He explained the change in a 2006 interview, saying “Once I stepped back, I liked the view” and pointing out that it allowed him to see the work from more perspectives and enabled him to anticipate problems faster. Chihuly describes his role as “more choreographer than dancer, more supervisor than participant, more director than actor.”

Dale Chihuly’s work is mind blowing and I’ve been wanting to visit the Dale Chihuly’s Glass House Garden and Glass Exhibit for years. I’m so glad that I finally had the opportunity during my most recent trip to Seattle without kids.

I took over 200 photos of my trip. I’m not sure how interested you all are in viewing my pictures. I went back and forth between showing my favorite photos all in one post and doing multiple posts with my favorite photos of each room. I decided to start with the prior. If you would like me to do future posts with additional photos of each room in Dale Chihuly’s Glass House Garden and Glass Exhibit please let me know.
