Dante Marioni Glass



After our visit with Carol Channing, we went to the Palm Springs Art Museum, which features free admission every Thursday evening.



Steven Wibben above professed that he didn't much care for art glass...



...but found himself enraptured by a new blown glass piece called Reticello Acorn & Leaf by the 47-year-old Seattle artist Dante Marioni.



The vase would look perfectly happy in the Op Art of the 60s and 70s exhibit upstairs, as its design shifts from every possible angle.

I am so glad the museum let you take pictures of the objets d'art. Very nice.

Mike,
Love that first picture.

Put this in the category of "Great minds think alike".
