Romantic Bridge of Art Glass - The fusion of old world goldsmithing with modern design
 

February is the month for flowers, chocolates, and endearments, and with this in mind we call your attention to the Chihuly Bridge of Glass. It is a stunning concrete, steel and art glass structure that links the Thea Foss Waterway and the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington. Completed in 2002, this commissioned artwork of Dale Chihuly (who was born in Tacoma) is the focal point, and the bridge is considered one of the area's most romantic places for watching the sunset.

I could look at Chihuly glass all day long. What a beautiful photo. Whenever I go to Vegas I make a point of going to look at the Chihuly ceiling at the Bellagio. I'd love to see the Museum of Glass in Tacoma someday.

I've been to the Museum of Glass and seen this bridge. It's remarkable! The Hot Shop is worth seeing too, as you can watch established and emerging glass artists create their work. Performance art at its finest!

Thanks for the great post.
