One of the exhibits I was excited to see at the VMFA was Chihuly. I've long been a fan of Dale Chihuly for the way his glassworks manipulate light, color, and space.
His flowerlike Macchia bowls are always a hit. They look like enormous flowers!
The blaze of color and shapes brought smiles to everyone's faces.
Many of the pieces have intricate parts, such as these sea creatures.
VMFA thru Feb 10, 2013.
