Back to The Chihuly Collection

Staying near St Petersburg for a few days, we enjoyed a second visit to the beautiful glass sculptures of the Chihuly Collection; photos are encouraged (so nice compared with most places!) so here they are:

 

We also watched a glass blowing demonstration – which was very splendid and interesting, going from a blob of glass to a big curvy dish a little like the last images above (though with stripes of color rather than those more intricate designs):

We were told that you can’t really see the final piece till it’s fully cooled (a day or more later) so the colors can settle!
