Chihuly at the ROM, November 2016

The Chihuly exhibit recently ended at the ROM.  For those not familiar with Chihuly he is a master artisan who works in glass and is renowned around the world for his installations and individual pieces.  He is from Seattle www.chihulygardenandglass.com and you can see his work in the entryway to the Royal York Hotel in Toronto as well as many other cities.

In November, a friend and I went to the ROM (the Royal Ontario Museum) in Toronto and took some photos of his work, which was allowed, and we got to see firsthand how much effort, talent and artistry goes into these works of art.  Please see the video for a glimpse which pales in comparison to being surrounded by the real thing.  Enjoy
