The Missouri Botanical Garden (MOBOT) staged a 30-piece exhibition of fused glass sculptures by Craig Mitchell Smith a few years ago. I recently promised to share some pictures from the glasshouse, so here they are.
In some shots, it’s not easy to tell glass from leaf. My favourites are the iridescent, lustrous pieces.
The glass was brought to life by spot lights: it must have looked wonderful in the evening when surrounding darkness enriched the colours.
I note on Craig Mitchell Smith’s website that he prefers to have his artwork speak for itself. I’m happy to go with that!
Shared (the square ones, at least) for Becky’s BrightSquares. Only one more day after today!
