museum of glass

Dale Chihuly is from Tacoma. And so, there
is a Museum of Glass right in the middle of
Downtown Tacoma, where you can view the
glass structures and also watch as students
and master glass blowers render their creations.

Myka and Haily by Jane's Hot Spot. This
is the actual building where they run the fire
furnaces and blow the glass. It's like a big,
silver, upside down sugar cone.

Myka on the Bridge of Glass.

Inside Jane's Hot Spot. (My pics of the artists
working with the furnaces turned out too dark!)

The girl's watched the glass blowing intently with
G'ma Janine. It was quite engrossing to watch the
artists, it made me want to take a class sometime...
