A Tisket...A Tasket

Come along and see some beautiful baskets...

It has been a busy week with out of town company - more about that in the next posting. One of the things we did was take our friends to the Leigh-Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. It is probably most famous for its Birds In Art. But another collection always draws visitors who are entranced with the forms and colors. So, let's take a look together...I hope you enjoy!

These exquisite pieces of glasswork are on permanent display at the Museum.

I will let the photos take you along...click on each one to enlarge!










One of Dale Chihuly's pieces is part of the collection


I will be back soon with more images from our week.

Pat - And wishing all the good people of Canada a Happy Canada Day!!!

  7. Pat, that glass work is lovely. I have thought about taking a class in glass blowing, but I am such a klutz that I would probably do serious damamge to myself with molten glass!
