This artwork is made by the artist Dale Chihuly in 2000 and the artist is still alive today. He is famous for his sculptures made of glass. The shapes on the artwork are very mysterious because there are many extraordinary shapes. The forms in there are spheres and circles as I see it. The colors I can see in the artwork are royal blue, orange, yellow, and red there are more colors but can not see them all in the picture.

I think it is my favorite because it’s very colorful and all the shapes are different, it’s really unique and it looks cool because of little details on it. It reminds me of a party.  I used crayons, pens, and colored pencils to make a drawing of this artwork, it was hard because I was copying all the unique swiggly lines.
