While nothing can compete with a Warhol Elvis, a super-slick, nearly-liquid blown glass chandelier can sway me to look away. Blown glass has inherent flow, lightness and almost otherworldly sheen at its best. Its organic forms bring in the soft, flowing quality of the feng shui water element. Emotive eye-candy— how could you ask for more in home decor?
I’ve been rolling through mountains of blown glass lately. I really just can’t get enough, and that is strange as well as wonderful! Today’s design ‘spiration, indeed, is blown glass beauty!
Here is where my blown glass obsession began: the Dale Chiluly exhibit at the Denver Botanical Gardens. I had seen photos of it in other places, but when I met that glass in the setting sun of Colorado, it was unforgettable.
Swirly glass bowls are the best of the handmade, and such an easy way to add color and life to any space!
An almost ghost-like blown glass lamp sparkles with liquid-waxed floors.
Amazing rich jade glass becomes a rich mirror as well as the ideal spot to rest a single flower!
And these guys are making their way into my greenhouse window. Blown glass ornaments burst with personality and life force in the sun, and they are so easy to sring up on curtain rods or wherever you want them.
I am so inspired to make a garden filled with glass… and even a few shelves filled, too! I just love the watery calm and melty sleek lines. I have seen such incredible glass artistry these days, it has lit a real fire in me to experience the process live! If you know of a glass blower in LA that I can visit soon, please let me know!!! xoxo Dana
