Dale Chihuly Is Cool

In the common happenstance of not turning the channel after something I was watching on television had finished... and some unknown subject began to air on my television, I have discovered the beautiful glass artwork of Dale Chihuly.

Having grown up near Corning, New York -- one of the world's capitals of artistic glass art -- I spent more than a few moments of my life watching trained artisans creating glass artwork, some of which (Steuben Glass) would become some of the most valuable contemporary glass on the planet. Therefore I have an appreciation of artwork like this. This is simply incredible stuff.
