{phx} garden of glass

June 20, 2009

Cactus are so prickly and glass so fragile you’d never think the two could mix, and yet artist Dale Chihuly achieved what seemed impossible. His exhibit The Nature of Glass on display at the Desert Botanical Gardens was a true testament to … well, I’m not sure what, maybe the beauty of nature.

Newly found: phx perk: cactus shapes
Cactus can be amazing to see and at Chihuly’s exhibit, the form of the glass mirrored the elegant shapes of the cactus themselves. And there are just so many different types of cactus. Who knew?
