I decided to check out one of the most nationally known glass gallery Habitat in light of michigan's glass month. I have to admit to not knowing a whole bunch about glass work and I certainly don't understand the market because pieces of glass are pricey...very pricey! Most of the pieces at Habitat are of known artists so the price tags range from $4,000 to $80,000! I enjoyed my visit much more than I expected and I encourage other glass skeptics to check out the space!
Of course I was drawn to the pieces that were more sculptural than vessel-like or crafty-decorative.
and no glass exhibit would be complete without a famous dale chihuly! I think this piece was only $40,000!
this piece was very labor intensive to say the least
even paintings that are made from glass
this one reminded me of an alien monster
I liked the all the bird pieces of glass on the wall...not as hot on the figure but the birds would make a really cool installation for a wall in your house!
crazy small, delicate glass work! again, I am not into the figures in the piece I like the small model feel...
delicate flower detail!
yes...even adorable glass puppies...ok, this was not a winner with me!
OK, no comment - use your imagination!
