Dale Chihuly

"Now sitting in the pond is The Huntington Museum of Art Tower, a stunning 10-foot-tall, 6-foot-wide glass sculpture comprised of 352 different pieces that curl toward the ceiling as if bursting forth, searching for the light.

The custom tower was made by the world's most famous art glass maker, Tacoma, Wash.-based Dale Chihuly (think Dr. Seuss loose in a glass factory). The stunning piece was given to the museum by the Polan family in honor of Dorothy Lewis Polan and Lake Polan Jr."

Did you see when his work was at the cincinnati museum of art a few years back? (I think it was 2004) Very cool.
