We had the pleasure of being invited to the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum's 4th Anniversary this past Saturday. We were invited to have breakfast in the Glass House and enjoy the museum before doors opened to the public.
Although, we've been manufacturing keychains for the Chihuly Gift Shop for some time now, we hadn't had the opportunity to visit the museum. With the privilege of being in the museum prior to the doors opening to the public John and I had a unique experience.
It was absolutely incredible! The colors alone was enough to make this bold color loving girl's heart pounce out of my chest. The skill and craftsmanship is truly amazing to see. As maker's we have a critical eye and mind of wonderment when viewing art. "How did they assemble this all?" "How do they keep this so darn clean?" "Look at these vibrant colors!"
The opportunity to be in there before public hours was such a treat. We were like two kids wandering around in a colorful wonderland. Admiring Chihuly's color palette of his work really made us appreciate the careful color selection that goes into his accessory products. Like the key chains we manufacture for the shop. Also visually connecting with his inspiration from the Northwest, conservatories and gardens was really inspiring. John and I personally connect to that both being from the northwest and avid home gardeners.
I know we've inspired our friends over the weekend with our very colorful social media posts from our experience there to go check it out. I hope we do the same here for anyone who keeps us with here and plans to visit the Seattle Center sometime soon.
Lasers and love, Thea
