I have been fortunate enough to meet many wonderful artists thanks to my involvement in the SF&F community, but if you were to ask me if there was one person whose work I would like to own a sample of I would have no hesitation in answering, and he hasn’t done any book covers. I don’t suppose I will be buying any of this person’s art, however, as it tends to cost as much as a house, sometimes as much as a very large house. I’m therefore very grateful when he puts on an exhibition, so that I can go and see his work without needing a lottery win.
As many of you will have guessed from the title of this post, that artist is Dale Chihuly. He works mainly in blown glass, and much of what he does would give poor old Howard Lovecraft nightmares. I am made of sterner stuff, and I’m sure you are too, which is why I’m posting some photos. The exhibition, should you want to see it, is at the Halcyon Gallery in New Bond Street, London. It will be there until the end of March. If you can’t get there, I hope the photos will be an acceptable alternative.
