Brilliant colors

"The foundation stones of the city wall were adorned with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation stone was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst." Revelation 21:19-20
Amazing, isn't it? The colors were even more brilliant in person. Everything you see is blown glass which has been turned, twisted, spiraled - you name it. It cascades down from the ceiling in the mall and can be seen from all levels which allows for some pretty amazing photos. The colors simply take your breath away.
This fountain is on the ground floor of the same mall. More blown glass. Notice the wall of water? It, also, starts from pretty much the ceiling and flows down several stories. I'm not sure how many pictures I took, but it certainly was a challenge selecting only two! (PS - I'm quite sure the head band is not part of the display.)

Here's a photo of the entire hanging sculpture. Incredible!

(PPS - these photos were taken at Lincoln Square in Bellevue WA during Thanksgiving weekend.)

I wonder if this is a work by Chiluli sp.? Its amazing glass sculpturing.
Thank you for your loving words of comfort. The reality is setting in to Lynne. I just got off the phone with her. There are so many things to be done that the mind gets a bit numb. We are trying to help all we can but also giving them time to work somethings out on their own.
We need your prayers too so that we can be the comfort and help they need.

Oh my goodness! What beautiful art! The colors are so amazing. I can't imagine what it would look like in person.

Just checking in to see how you are doing:)

Love and Blessings....
