Chihuly at the Halcyon Gallery

On Friday I visited the Halcyon Gallery in New Bond Street to see the exhibition by Dale Chihuly, the contemporary glass artist.

It was a spectacular experience of colour, light, form and texture. Unlike at the V&A, you can get really close to the pieces  and examine them in detail. While we were there, a cleaner came in and started gingerly dusting the glass with a feather duster – what a heartstopping task!

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

The Halcyon Gallery is at 144-146 New Bond Street. The exhibition is free and runs until 31 March.

  1. Hi Kim, thanks for blogging about this, I wasn’t even aware it was on. I was absolutely overwhelmed by the Chihuly when he was at Kew, so I’ll definitely have this on my list to must sees.
