A Boat Load of Balls May 15, 2017

Posted by digitalbrownshirt in News.

AKA “Check out my balls”.


It’s actually part of the “Dale Chihuly: Magic & Light” exhibit at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.

We saw some Chihuly pieces at a glass exhibit near here, years ago. Delightful.

I had a client who used to trade in art glass, and I handled some Chihulys for him, but I never had the opportunity to handle his balls.

Some balls are held for charity. Or so they say.

Almost all of them are, probably. Holding balls just for your own benefit is considered rather self-serving.

Looks like somebody has blue balls.

Mrs. Geezer and I went to Dale’s studio in Tacoma. We also attended a lecture of his in Boise.

Wow, that sounds great! Did you get to see his balls?

Probably once he got famous he wouldn’t let anybody touch his balls.

In Seattle, he set up an entire museum dedicated to showcasing his balls. That’s ballsy.

His glasswork is probably the main reason for seeing the museum here. There’s a massive tower of glass trumpets stacked 3 stories high in the front room, while his exhibit seems permanent to me. Definitely the best part of the museum.

He who has glass trumpets and balls shouldn’t live near an opera singer
