About this title
The challenge was to bring beauty to paradise -- and the Sun and Moon. Sol Kerzner asked Dale Chihuly to make dazzling yet approachable sculpture for the new Atlantis Resort Hotel on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Chihuly's answer: four sculptures that respond to Atlantis' architecture and the singular beauty of the site. The Crystal Gate is a glittering tower of crystal soaring nearly 20 feet into the air. The Temple of the Sun has more than 2,300 yellow, orange, and red elements radiating from a fiery globe atop a replica of a Mayan temple. The opalescent white and cobalt blue glass of the Temple of the Moon seems to glow and fill the room with a cool light. Finally, the magnificent Atlantis Seaform Chandelier displays the sealife forms of jellyfish, anemones, squid, and seaweed in delicate shades highlighted with silver and gold. In this extravagant book, designed by Werkhaus Design of Seattle, each piece is shown from concept through completion. Chihuly, working with a collaborative and creative team of artists, glassblowers, technicians, and installers, has created glass sculptures that dazzle with the magic of light.
