Well when I entered the museum I was enchanted by the the 30 foot Chandelier just above the information desk...I kept staring at it thinking...."Where on earth have I seen it before?".
And it was only yesterday, while I was looking at old pics, that I actually realized that that beautiful Chandelier was the same I saw in San Francisco 3 years ago.
The designer is a faboulous glass artist, Dale Chihuly. Have a look at his website, it's stunning!! (http://www.chihuly.com/)
Born in 1941 in Tacoma, USA, Chihuly worked at the Venini glass factory in Venice where he learnt how to blow glass. Back to the US he cofounded the Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State and became the avant-garde leader in the development of glass as a fine art. His work is included in more than 200 hundred museum collections worldwide.
Here are some of the pics I took in London (2011) and San Francisco (2008)...
