Gardens By The Bay Has Glass Floral Sculptures Till 1 Aug, Admire Nature’s Fragile Beauty

Gardens By The Bay Will Have Glass Floral Sculptures By Artist Dale Chihuly

With the insane heat and erratic downpour of late, outdoor activities might have to take a backseat for the time being.

But indoor activities that don’t involve us being at the mercy of the weather can still take place, and here’s one that families should consider checking out this weekend.

From now till 1 Aug, Gardens by the Bay (GBTB) will be exhibiting glass floral sculptures alongside the blooming flowers for nature and photography lovers alike.

Here are some of his artwork that has made its way into our little red dot — for the perusal and admiration of people who seek comfort in beautiful art pieces.

With sunlight reflecting off the coloured surfaces of the flower chandeliers, the speckles of light refractions will almost certainly provide a magical experience for visitors.

Glass floral sculptures will change throughout duration of exhibition

According to a GBTB spokesperson, the floral displays will change as the weeks go by.

From 23 Apr, visitors will get to feast their eyes on Chihuly’s Electric Yellow and Deep Coral Tower as they enter the Flower Dome.

The flowers planted alongside the various glass sculptures have also been carefully curated to match the colour schemes of the art pieces.

For instance, large bromeliads and African daisies have been carefully planted to match the sweet pink and purple theme of the White Tower.
