It´s all in the details of sparkling Crystal Clouds

Swarovski´s Crystal Clouds designed and created by Andy Cao and Xavier Perrot

One of the highlights of our trip to Wattens was seeing the Crystal Clouds in the gardens of Swarovski Crystal Worlds.This place is really full of surprises.There´s the Giant, the lush and Art Chamber of Wonders, a beautifully designed Restaurant, and of course, a world class interactive Tower play area for kids.

Probably people think that it´s just a place for sparkling crystal and shopping for “Bling -bling” but I ´m telling you, there are some serious good stuff in here. And the—sparkling Crystal Clouds is definitely worth the look.

The details, the concept, the artistic approach and overall installation is simply brilliant. Of course, natural clouds can never be substituted, but this installation is absolutely gorgeous. For me, the focal point is the quality of 800,000 crystals attached to the cloud-like net formation.I respect the concept and laborious creativity. These crystal clouds are shining bright against the sun on a sunny day and reflects a shimmering delight at night.

Anyway, if you would ask what´s so special about the crystals?

As compared to other glass jewelry, Swarovski jewelry is made of extremely high-quality crystal glass. The high-quality crystals come from the very uniform structure which offers the Swarovski crystals amazing clarity

Every particular in nature, a leaf, a drop, a crystal, a moment of time is related to the whole, and partakes of the perfection of the whole.– Ralph Waldo Emerson

  4. Those crystal clouds are amazing! I have been fascinated by crystals (gemstones particularly the precious ones) so seeing an art piece like what you featured on this post is superfood to my optical organs.

    The last photo got me. The creativity reflected in it is cerebral. I would love to replicate it given the chance.

  5. Thanks Tina…I am glad you appreciate it. Yes, dazzling would be a right word. I guess once in our lives we are also worthy to be dazzled by artworks created by man itself.
