CHIHULY GLASS MUSEUM

FUN FACTS:

-- Dale Chihuly hasn’t blown glass since 1979.

-- Inspired by a poster he had of a glassblower with cheeks puffed, he dipped a pipe into some melted stained glass and blew a bubble. From that moment, Dale Chihuly decided he wanted to pursue glassblowing.

-- Weighing in at 40,000 pounds, Fiori di Como is one of Chihuly’s largest, and most popular glass sculptures. Its located at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, is made up of about 2,000 pieces of hand-blown glass and covers approximately 2,000 square feet of the hotel ceiling.
