Overview

"This book accompanies the first-ever exhibition in the UK of the work of American artist Dale Chihuly. Chihuly's glass is richly coloured, extravagantly formed, and enormously varied, ranging from 'Chandeliers' to 'Reeds', 'Seaforms' to 'Macchias'. Both the exhibition and the book reveal Chihuly's development over the last thirty years. Chihuly's glass is technically and sculpturally ambitious and often on a scale unmatched by any other artist." Drawing on the museum's historic Renaissance collections and expertise, the book also explores the development of the Venetian glass workshop and Chihuly's enormous influence in introducing it and Venetian glassmakers to the United States. It also includes a brief resume of his career and an assessment of his art and its significance.
