Vibrant vines to fantastical flowers: Glass takes over Kew

Kew Gardens is the latest stage for the renowned glass sculptor Dale Chihuly.


Following the success of an exhibition over decade ago, the Royal botanic gardens have once again invited the sculptor back, to transform the venue into a major outdoor gallery space.


It is the most technically challenging work the artist has ever created, with 32 of Chihuly's other-worldly creations have been dotted around the grounds, immersed in special plant beds and foliage to accentuate the colourful pieces.


Chihuly at Kew opens Saturday 13 April to Sunday 27 October 2019.
