Dale Chihuly is a world renowned contemporary glass artist and his new exhibition is now live at Kew Gardens, London's UNESCO world heritage site.
Expect to find lots of colour and light which blends in with the plants and greenery around the gardens and its surroundings.
32 art installations are dotted around the gardens, Temperate House, the world's largest surviving Victorian glasshouse which has recently undergone a major restoration.
There is film detailing Chihuly's creative work and this can be seen in the Shirley Sherwood Gallery where there is also a gift shop where you can take home some memrobilia. The glass works may set you back a few thousand but a pack of cards is £12!
