It sparkles. It’s sharp, so it could draw blood. And it’s beautiful.
Is it…a vampire?
No. (But it’s the right time of year to think so.)
Actually, this is an extreme closeup of one of several glass cacti created by artist Dale Chihuly. They are part of his “Nature of Glass” exhibit on display through March 2012 at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix.
I love glass, and thanks to a happy Google accident, I am now aware of Dale’s work. Also, Phoenix locals can take advantage of glass blowing classes that are offered throughout the year at the Botanical Garden.
But vampires? No. Fire makes it tricky.
