These are beautiful! I should take a drive there it's not too far from me. It would be nice to see in person ... spring things up a bit!

Kathy said...

I have only seen glass blown once and it was neat to watch. Great photo's. Hope you have a wonderful MYM! =)

VioletSky said...

Drowsey: You should. Come on down. (if you want, let me know, I can get you in)

VioletSky said...

Kathy: It is fascinating - and hot!

Becky said...

I love glass in the garden.

My MYM is here. Please stop by if you get a chance.

These are beautiful, I'd also like to see it, but amm just far far away from this place..thanks for sharing this anyway. I love that first photo.

Sharon said...

Beautiful art and lovely Mellow Yellow post!

VioletSky said...

Becky: it adds a certain sheen and a different delicacy.

Pacey: this is why I had to share, for you so far away!

Sharon: thanks. I intend to go back for more, I'm sure it changes subtly with the light.

What interesting glass art. It does add a touch of spring to the garden, doesn't it? Nice MYM choice. Enjoy the day. By the way, your Sky shot below with the pier is stunning!

April said...

These beautiful works of art look so lovely in the lush setting of the gardens. Thanks for sharing your wonderful pictures.

Teena in Toronto said...

Very cool!

I played too :)

Speedcat Hollydale said...

What an interesting "and stunning" concept. SWEET!!!

VioletSky said...

Linnea and April it is interesting, and having them placed around the Mediterranean Garden is a wonderful idea - and antidote to winter.

VioletSky said...

Thanks for looking in Teena and Speedy, "stunning", eh!

Dianne said...

I love the shape of the first one

Lilli & Nevada said...

I love that first shot, i had to look at it several times, i was shocked to read it was glass. Nicely done

VioletSky said...

Dianne, you can almost imagine it gently blowing in a breeze, can't you?

Then I think the artist was successful, Lilli!

Beautiful. I love glass objects. The setting is perfect. I thought I was transported to another season. Checked to see the date on this.

VioletSky said...

Yes, Irene, it was like being transported to another season!
