CHIHULY Inspires

October 27, 2017

This blue Chihuly glass sculpture is called the Sapphire Star and was one of the pieces that inspired the photography on the Serve Kindness website.

Being in nature is always inspiring us and we find peace and creativity during long walks in the woods with friends, both human and canine.

Jillian and I took an inspirational trip to the New York Botanical Garden this fall to see the art exhibition CHIHULY. Dale Chihuly, a world-renowned glass sculptor from Seattle, makes large scale, vibrantly colored works that fit into nature. The spectacular setting of the Botanical Garden with its vast diversity of flowers, shrubs, and trees complement the works by Chihuly.

Why does this modern aesthetic look so good in nature? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that glass is made from naturally occurring elements; sand and fire. Glass has a very long history and has been essential to many of the greatest advances in civilization. Glass is not a lost art but rather one that Serve Kindness wants to celebrate.

CHIHULY inspired us to begin photographing our bowls in nature, we found the natural shapes of logs, sorghum, grass, and stone to be a wonderful juxtaposition to the modern, clean lines of our Kindness Bowls and the warm browns, greens, blues and greys found in nature really set off the bowl’s vibrant interior colors.
