Lost Marbles by idolhands Lost Marbles by idolhands
Chihuly boat full of glass marbles in every size, taken at an exhibition of his work. The boats were truly cast down rivers and had the look of beautiful worn wood.

The famous glass artist specifically mentioned enjoying the regular toy variety as a child, and I marveled at how we can perhaps find bliss and lifelong ambition in such simple things.

I'd be open to this image being used for a texture resource as well. :thumbsup:

@_@ So pretty! I could stare at them for hours! ^^; I think it is really cool how one blown glass creation is never the same as the next.

It's terribly dangerous work as well!

O_O Definately! But it would be really neat to be able to watch the glass be blown and colored! :heart:

They are so beautiful! Pretty marbles were a weakness of mine when I was little.

I actually still have a few and ended up dragging out my "junk box" of color (there are others), which I've kept and memorized with fingertips and eyes since childhood.

It was easy to stare at this work for ten minutes while waiting for a chance to get close or a photo, the crowds were tremendous!
