LOVE Chihuly. Two of the three I recognize - Tacoma glass museum, yes? - but is the octopus also there? I've never seen it!

The Chihuly pieces in my photographs were taken on his "bridge of glass" near his museum in Tacoma, Washington.
This from the Chihuly website link, above:The Chihuly Bridge of Glass is a 500-foot-long pedestrian bridge linking downtown Tacoma, Washington, to the city's waterfront, the Thea Foss Waterway. Conceived by Dale Chihuly, artist and native of Tacoma, and designed in collaboration with Arthur Andersson of Andersson·Wise Architects, it is a display of color and form soaring seventy feet into the air. The Chihuly Bridge of Glass, commissioned by the Museum of Glass: International Center for Contemporary Art, was gifted by the museum to the city of Tacoma. On July 6, 2002, the bridge was dedicated and opened to the public.

I have seen that Bridge of Glass and didn't remember the artist. I am in Vegas and went to Chihuly Glass shop yesterday. Beautiful. The Bellagio has a HUGE ceiling of his work at the entry way. Amazing. He apparantly comes twice a year to Bellagio for book signing. Next month if you are looking for an autographed book. I could afford a book but not his $4000 bowl. Yikes.
