Dale Chihuly 11 Piece Handblown Pink Yellow Blue Art Glass Persian Series, 1992

About

Authentic Dale Chihuly. An iridescent effect in pink, yellow, and pale blue outlined in bright cobalt blue. Signed on verso of small 4" x 4" vessel Chihuly 92. Largest piece measures 28" wide x 23" x 14" tall. Assorted smaller pieces range in size from 4" up to 6". All pieces in excellent condition, no chips, cracks or repairs. As found on Diane Farris: Persians: Chihuly Persians, begun in 1986, are exotic forms with spiraling “body wraps” and herringbone effects decorating their surfaces. The series includes both “table-top” compositions, often with smaller parts in them, and large Persians mounted on walls and ceilings. When exhibited for the first time in Chihuly’s 1986 solo exhibition at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs of the Palais du Louvre in Paris, the Persians were described in the exhibition catalog as “new possibilities from the blowpipe”. Persians are often marked by saturated color and highly unusual forms. “The Persians started out as a search for new forms. I set up Martin Blank and Robbie Miller in a corner of the hotshop at Pilchuck (Chihuly founded Pilchuck Glass School in 1971). I would make large pencil drawings for them with a couple of dozen small forms, and then I would put an X under the ones I wanted them to go for. Over the next year, we made more than 1,000 miniature experimental forms.” Dale Chihuly Item ID: 10356-70.

About Dale Chihuly (Artist)

With his sculptural works that fuse naturalistic forms with vibrant colors, Dale Chihuly has established himself as one of the world’s preeminent contemporary makers of art glass. The Tacoma, Washington, native’s experimental techniques — manifest in large-scale glass sculptures, installations and environmental artworks alongside smaller table-top pieces — combine fine art, design, architecture and craft. Chihuly’s inspired creative energy has brought glass blowing to a place at the forefront of the arts in the United States.


     Chihuly’s prolific body of work is coupled with a dedication to artistic instruction, education and community. Trained in interior design at the University of Washington, he pursued graduate work with Harvey Littleton, who built the first academic art glass program in the U.S. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After further studies at the Rhode Island School of Design, Chihuly was awarded a 1968 Fulbright Fellowship to study glass blowing at the Venini glass factory on the island of Murano in Venice, where he was first introduced to group collaboration in glass making. Not only has Chihuly been committed to his own improvement as an artist, but he has also devoted much of his career to sharing his knowledge. He returned to RISD as an instructor, and after working there for more than a decade and he cofounded the Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State in 1971. An automobile accident in 1976 left Chihuly blind in one eye; a subsequent injury while bodysurfing weakened one shoulder, leaving him reliant on assistant glassblowers to execute his designs.


     Chihuly’s skills and technical innovations have allowed him to make pieces in an astonishing array of patterns, textures and hues — yet his work can be recognized immediately. He has created several notable extended series of artworks. These include his “Seaforms,” which evoke shells, starfish and other marine animals; “Blankets,” — composed of cylindrical units in patterns suggested by Native American textiles; and, most famously, his grand chandeliers made up of scores of curling, curving, pepper-shaped elements. Whether large or small, as you will see on these pages, the works of Dale Chihuly blend practical flair and bravura artistry. They are a highlight of any contemporary art and design collection.
