Glass Art to blow your mind

‘What I’ve always really been interested in is space. Even when I made a single Cylinder or Macchia, my interest was always in space. I was thinking not of the object itself, but how the object would look in a room.’

– Dale Chihuly

Venturing out to new and different exhibitions is one of my favourite things to do in London. You’re never short of creative inspiration with all the different exhibitions going on all over London all the time. Last weekend I checked out something a bit different, hand-blown glass art.

Dale Chihuly is an incredible artist when it comes to glass. I’ll never forget his incredible work that was in the V&A hanging over the information desk (it may still be there). His exhibition at the Halcyon Gallery called ‘Beyond the Object‘ showcases his incredible talent for colour and style when it comes to glass art.

Being a designer, I love colour and the combinations that work together to create something eye-catching. However, I don’t think you need to be a designer or an artist to appreciate Dale’s talent.

It was very impressive how carefully the installations were considered with light and are all the more powerful for that. Glass Art by Dale Chihuly Glass Art by Dale Chihuly Glass Art by Dale Chihuly Glass Art by Dale Chihuly Glass Art by Dale Chihuly Glass Art by Dale Chihuly

‘Beyond the Object’ is a free exhibition on at the Halcyon Gallery in London until 21 April, it’s definitely worth a visit. For more information visit http://www.halcyongallery.com/exhibitions/dale-chihuly-beyond-the-object.
