Fireworks of Glass is the largest permanent sculpture of blown glass by renowned artist Dale Chihuly. The 43-foot-tall tower rises above a glass ceiling.

 

The Tower - The Fireworks of Glass tower stands in the museum’s central atrium, where children and families can circle the ramps and explore it from all sides. Chihuly's artists blew and installed 3,200 pieces of glass on the tower. It comprises more than 3,200 individually blown, brilliantly colored, two- to four-foot-long pieces of smooth and twisted glass called Horns and Goosenecks.
