One of the things Levi and I did during my 3 week hiatus was to go to a glass pumpkin patch held every year at the Morton Arboretum. I absolutely love blown glass, glass paperweights, and fancy glassware so seeing all these beautiful pieces is always a treat for me! There are literally thousands of them showcased (and for sale!) from artists around the country and in most cases the artists are on-site for you to talk to.

The first two were really hard to photograph; the blue because of the how the oxidized metals lit up in the light and the green because of the layering of colors from top to bottom.
The pictures are probably fairly large, for which I’m sorry. I did cut them down to a third of their original size but I was also concerned about losing some of the finer details.
