My Blue Dots
to honor ..... to inform ...
We went to Seattle
to see the piece.
Top of Chandelier
Bottom two parts of chandelier
View of the blown glass
(Approximately 1,800 pieces)
and Dale Chihuly
He showed up in his Stanford red
And had just a few words to say.
We were viewing his breathtaking chandelier
That would be installed at Stanford someday.
We all arrived before him
And were awestruck by what we did see.
The enormity of this stunning piece
Had a powerful impact on me.
The walls were dark and the three pieces
Were hung side by side so that we,
Could see the piece in its entirety
And it was a magnificent sight to see.
The piece touched our heart, soul, and mind
As only an art piece can do.
At Stanford it will continue to touch
All those who view it too.
The creative work by Dale and his team
Will forever inspire many others.
To be creative in their own fields
Be they businessmen, students, or mothers.

My Blue Dots - Chihuly Chandelier
Before the chandelier is shipped to Stanford,
it is first completed at the Chihuly Studio in Seattle. The finished chandelier is 33 1/2 feet and the studio ceiling is much less, thus this three piece chandelier had to be installed in two sections.
The chandelier will now be taken down, packed, and shipped to Stanford to be installed in the Lorry I. Lokey Stem Cell Building in the summer of 2010.

We continue the original work of My Blue Dots... honoring those who wear the blue dots, informing others what the blue dots are,(tattoos you receive before you go through radiation) and supporting cancer research.
My Blue Dots has supported Dr.Albert Koong, at Stanford, for ten years and he and his team have made many exciting discoveries with their research. We are also gifting ornaments to the Oncology Department at Stanford for the doctors to give to their patients when they finish their radiation treatments. This has been a successful program - appreciated by both the doctors and patients. All of these projects are available because of your
on going support and we thank you
As we all know, those going through this cancer experience need our love and support all year long. These hand blown ornaments are one of a kind and are made to honor those who wear the blue dots. (tattoos you receive that mark where the radiation beams go) They also stand as a symbol of a world free of cancer. If you would like to purchase one of these beautiful hand blown ornaments, please visit our website at:
