the embrace of spring

      • I recently watched Rick Mercer (Canada) visit a glass blowing place and try to master it, so that’s probably why it was fresh in my mind. I LOVE Dale Chihuly’s work–you’re probably familiar with him–he’s from my area, Washington State 🙂

      • I’ve watched PBS programs where his team is working on pieces for upcoming shows, and he’s describing the stress of packing Huge fragile pieces to be shipped somewhere…there are whole “gardens” made of glass…he’s phenomenal.
