Synopsis: Seeing Northwest Indian baskets collapsing under their own weight inspired Chihuly to create his groundbreaking 'Basket' series. He translated the sagging woven fibre works into translucent glass, eternally arresting their surrender to gravity -- stopping time -- and staking out his own aesthetic territory with those asymmetrical forms. In this book art historian Linda Norden, who first wrote about the artist in 1982, searches for a critical context for this work in an 'unabashedly personal effort to reconsider just what Chihuly's rather maverick art entails and to evaluate his paradoxical position vis-a-vis the contemporary art world in which he works'. Northwest historian Murray Morgan writes about the Native American baskets that so fired Chihuly's imagination when he saw them in the storerooms of the Washington State Historical Museum in 1977. Scattered throughout the book are brief statements by the artist revealing his working process. The series development is illustrated with full-page photographs of early installations and of the individual glass works and drawings. Sepia-toned photographs of Indian baskets in Chihuly's personal collection and full-colour working shots add to this comprehensive study of Chihuly's Baskets.

Review: "Baskets turned out to be one of the best ideas I have ever had. I had seen some beautiful Indian baskets . . . and I was struck by the grace of their slumped, sagging forms. I wanted to capture this grace in glass. The breakthrough for me was recognizing that heat was the tool to be used with gravity to make these forms."

Book Description Portland Press, Seattle, Washington, U.S.A., 1996. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Second Printing. Size: Rectangular Folio. This is the 1996 second printing issued without a dust jacket, exhibition catalog for an exhibition of Chihuly's work starting in April 1994 and ending in March 1996 in very as museums in Washington State and Montana. Turquoise cloth over boards, silver lettering, color illustration laid in on front cover, textured endpapers, 148 pages, essay on Chihuly's work by Linda Nordin , Footnotes to the essay, full-color plates include those Chihuly's glass baskets, baskets drawings, and shots of him working. This is a very nice copy, clean with no writing or marks, and the binding is sound. "Anyone at all familiar with Dale Chihuly's work knows that the individual glass objects he creates represent only isolated moments in a complex creative continuum. Like stills or out-takes from endless film loop, a given' Basket' or' Cylinder' or 'Float' is as much an image as it is an object - a reference to all the forms that precede and follow it, to the action and process that go into its making and to the intuitive form-idea, which is its origin. Chihuly's fondness for obsessively photographing his glass and his eagerness to have it described in words are only corollaries of his habit of nesting and stacking and gathering pieces into astonishing accumulations and his predilection for further enlarging these accumulations through their lighting and installation." This is a heavy book which may require extra postage. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 3 lbs 12 oz. Category: Art & Design; ISBN: 1576840034. Inventory No: 006548.
