While walking through the Chihuly show at the Seattle Art Museum many years ago, the man
in front of me turned to his companion and said, "I don't understand why we're not
allowed to smoke in here with all of these ashtrays everywhere!"
I did laugh, I confess.

True enough. I saw a bumper sticker that said, "RECYCLE CHILHULY'S" The
do seem to show up like the abundant mushrooms around these parts.

A bunch of years ago I was talking to an old college buddy who was and
still is Chihulys head gaffer. I made some crack about the guy probably
being a devil to work for an he told me well " alot of people say alot of
things about the guy but he has done alot for me over the years". He then
went on to talk for a half hour about the new studio he just opened and
his own work which was quite unlike the guy(Chihuly)he worked for- kinda
made me want to get to work........
A couple of years later I sat in on talk by Chihuly on his Navajo
vessells- his Pendleton blanket collection- and the Venice thing- The talk
was at the Lowell Textile Museum here in Massachusetts. I saw an
impressario to the nth degree with a very strong drawing foundation in his
work- the guy had the room- just some thoughts.
