Glass exhibit and demo in St. Petersburg.

This past weekend I had the chance to visit the Chihuly glass collection in St. Petersburg, FL.

Chihuly-Red-BowlChihuly-Pink-Glass-Rock-CandyHis work with glass is stunning, leaving you wondering how most of it was even possible to make. Some of the pieces ranged from the size of a baseball to over 10 feet tall. The lighting and setting of each piece was very nice as well, making the colors really shine and the shapes pop. Unfortunately there was no photography allowed inside the exhibit, but I was able to shoot some in the shop and outside.

Hot Shop-Blown Glass-TorchAfter viewing the collection we made our way over to the "Hot Shop" at the Morean Arts Center where they demo the process of making blown glass pieces. This was really fun to watch, observing the whole process from start to finish. It makes you really appreciate all the hard work that goes into each piece.

Take a look at the galleries below to see all the steps involved to make a blown glass bowl.
