I was looking at my photos from the most recent Chihuly exhibit at the Desert Botanical Garden and I found myself drawn to different glass pieces in shades of purple. I've photographed these "Neodymium Reeds" on several occasions since the exhibit went up. This one shows them framing a giant agave plant.
In the indoor part of the exhibit, shades of purple are also expressed.
The one to the left looks like pulled taffy.
Looking at the photos prompted me to go back and look at the photos from the two previous Chihuly exhibits at the garden in search of shades of purple. And I found a boat full of blues and purples that were from the April of 2009 exhibit.
From the 2014 exhibit, I found these pretty fan-shaped glass sculptures with the Neodymium Reeds behind them. Chihuly uses all colors in his art work but since purple is a favorite color of mine, these really appeal to me.
