Inspiring Artist of the day - Dale Chihuly
Supreme master of the art of glass blowing!
Wow, and more... I went to an exhibition of his work at Kew Gardens and have seen more at the V&A, all of it is exquisite and speaks volumes about his enthusiasm for his craft.
Glass blowing is hard work and admittedly Chihuly now has a team to help him make his pieces - he is seventy seven this year - it shows how much energy the man has as well as raw talent.

I particularly love his work because he shows his process, he draws what he wants to make.
He is now working on vitreous enamelled glass panels... painting with glass!
