About this title

Synopsis:

Seeing Northwest Indian baskets collapsing under their own weight inspired Chihuly to create his groundbreaking Basket series. He translated the sagging woven-fiber works into translucent glass, eternally arresting their surrender to gravity-stopping time--and staking out his own aesthetic territory with those aymmetrical forms. Scattered throughout the book are brief statements by the artist revealing his working process. It also features sepia-toned photographs of Indian baskets from Chihuly's personal collection and full-color working shots.

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."
