As an art conservator, I get the opportunity to work intimately with some pretty wonderful works of art. It's one of the perks of the business. So, how do you get up close and personal with a 19 foot tail blown glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly? Well, first you wait for the sculpture to get really dusty, then you steady your nerves and go after it using a 19 foot electric scissor lift.
While up there I took the unique opportunity to snap a few photos that highlight the lushness of this wonderful material.
