“Silvered Plum and Cobalt Polyvitro Float Chandelier”

Franklin Park Conservatory

Columbus OH

Dale Chihuly used polyvitro, a plastic material, as an alternative to glass for some site-specific installations where size and potential vulnerability were an issue.   This chandelier from 1999 is an example of such a piece.    photo taken 9/18/15
