Synopsis: In 1999, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London installed a Chihuly Chandelier in its main entrance hall. It is the first major artwork by Chihuly to be permanently installed in the UK. As a result, from 21 June to 21 October 2001, an extensive exhibition of Chihuly's art was shown at the V&A. This is a powerful book that has been crafted to explain the works presented in the Victoria and Albert Museum exhibition. Outstanding essays written by leading experts in contemporary focus on both a historical and contemporary understanding of glass as it pertains to Chihuly's art. Drawing on the museum's historic Renaissance collections and expertise, the book also explores the development of the traditional Venetian glass workshop and Chihuly's enormous influence in introducing Venetian glassmakers and his own inimitable variations on Venetian style to contemporary glass. In addition, the book includes a chronology of Chihuly's life and listings of his museum exhibitions and museum collections. Over 100 stunning colour photographs do justice to Chihuly's masterworks, providing clarity and detail in examining his diverse oeuvre. 'Chihuly at the V&A' invites readers to marvel in the uncommon and uncompromising world of Chihuly glass.

Review: Chihuly at the V&A catalogs Seattle-based avant-garde glass sculptor Dale Chihuly's exhibition at London's Victoria and Albert Museum in 2001, his first exhibition in Britain. Chihuly's glass is distinctive and grandly conceived, and his fame has been achieved through his growth as an artist as well as the overwhelming public response to his work. The centerpiece of the V&A exhibition was a sculpture originally titled Ice Blue and Spring Green Chandelier, which was designed, blown, and first assembled in Seattle but has been hanging in the domed area of the museum since October 1999. This and many other Chihuly sculptures are described and photographed in the book, which is divided into three sections. The first, titled "Chihuly at the V&A" was written by Jennifer Hawkins Opie, deputy curator of the Department of Ceramics and Glass at the V&A. A chapter on Venetian tradition was written by Reino Liefkes, an expert on European glass, and the final chapter, "Chihuly and Venice" is by Dan Klein, an authority on 20th-century decorative arts and contemporary glass. We learn that Chihuly worked and studied with the glass masters of the Venetian island of Murano. He uses their collaborative glassmaking techniques in making his sculptures. Three or four people work together in a choreographed performance--each playing a precise part in the gathering of the glass and the making of the object under the direction of the master gaffer, the maestro. Chihuly's oeuvre owes much to the grand tradition of Venetian glass, which the V&A represents with international standing. The museum therefore offered a splendid context for Chihuly's work and this book offers researched insight into the historical continuum against which his work should be judged. --Dale Kneen
