Description:

1576840050 This FIRST EDITION is in FINE condition in very scarce colorful DW with collaborators names in FINE condition. Copyright page lists 1996, Portland Press with no further listings or subsequent printings; this is therefore assumed to be First Edition and may be a First Printing. Book is in FINE condition with textured beige paper boards with bold black lettering on top half over 1/4 black leather overboards and corners. Book's spine tips and corners are true with bottom front corner gently bumped. Book's spine has bold black stamped lettering (on black background looking as if blind-stamped.) Binding and insides are tight, bright, clean and unmarked with NO previous owner's or library markings, NO foxing and NOT a remainder or book club edition. Book is a handsome art piece, produced by Lisa Pettit, with art by DALE CHIHULY from "Chandeliers: Chihuly Over Venice" exhibition in September, 1996 held in City of Venice. Full color and full page photographs by Russell Johnson, Terry Rishel and Paolo Della Corte document this amazing exhibition that premiered above the water ways of Venice where Chihuly originally studied with Ludovico de Santillana at the Venini Factory. Essays by William Warmus and Dana Self. Book is covered by thick glossy DW with beige background and hundreds of artists/writers names in rainbow colors in alphabetical order starting with Asko Aalto and ending with Davide Zanella. DW is also in FINE condition, covered by Brodart and unclipped (although there are no price points (or text) on inside flaps.) DW's spine tips and corners are true. CHIHULY OVER VENICE, copyright 1996, ISBN#: , hardcover, 9.5" x 12.25", unpaginated with Chihuly's chronology and Museum collection list; plus a color-coordinated list at end of book with names of the artists and artisans who blew (the glass) and built the Chandeliers over Venice. This list is broken down by the five countries (and their factories where the Chandeliers were made) that Chihuly thanked and credited in his dedication at the beginning of the book - Finland (Hackman Nuutajarvi), Ireland (Waterford Crystal), Mexico (VitroCrisa Monterrey), Italy (Vetritia Signoretto Venice) and U.S.A. (The Boathouse Seattle.)The names on the DW seem to come from this list and also include writers and photographers mentioned above and credited with assisting in this handsome, colorful and collectible book.

About this title:

Synopsis: Bound like an artist's sketchbook this book documents the culmination of this amazing artistic odyssey that took the artist from his Seattle Boathouse hot shop to Nuutajarvi, Finland; Waterford, Ireland; Monterrey, Mexico; and finally Venice to blow glass. In the factories in those locations, Chihuly and his team of American glass blowers worked with native artisans more accustomed to making functional objects than art. Together they created the 14 chandeliers that graced the campos and canals of Venice for a remarkable time in September 1996. In her essay Dana Self, curator of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, muses on the relationship of Chihuly's glass and 'The Spectacle of Beauty'. She concludes that "Chihuly's fantastical explorations demonstrate that beauty does produce a meaningful experience of the world." Writer William Warmus chronicles the culmination of this two-year project with his diary entries. Full-colour photographs record for readers the installations as they were assembled. An extensive chronology traces the artist's career.
