Blown Away by Rainbows

Tacoma, Washington is well known as one of the host cities of a top greywater university and Center for Urban Waters as posted here. But the real treasure discovered during my recent visit is the Museum of Glass. Live demonstrations are streamed here. Collections from the masters of glass blowing like some of native son Dale Chihuly's early years, and the grandmaster Lino Tagliapietra are on permanent display. But this Tagliapietra piece really caught the eye of the Rainbow Water Coalition. F. Scott Fitzgerald once said "Here's to alcohol, the rose colored glasses of life." Rainbow Water Coalition corollary "Here's to blown colored glasses, the alcohol for grey sky life".

Yes, I hate blown glass art and I happen to live in the blown glass art capital of the world, Seattle, Washington.
