Synopsis: Trade blankets, often called "Pendletons" after their best-known manufacturer, were woven in hundreds of combinations of colors and designs by woolen mills. Chihuly, who had studied weaving and textiles, became intrigued by the blankets' vibrant beauty and began collecting them. Included in this collection are blankets not only from Pendleton Woolen Mills, but also from other manufacturers, such as J. Capps and Sons, Buell Manufacturing Company, Racine Woolen Mills, and Oregon City Woolen Mills.
Also included in this volume are selections of Chihuly's series of Blanket Cylinders. This series features an innovative technique: threads of colored glass are fused into a drawing of a blanket design, then picked up on the surface of hot cylinders, resulting in an image that vividly evokes a blanket's unique texture, pattern, and colors.
Chihuly's Pendletons has 172 full-color reproductions, including blankets from the artist's private collection, historical photographs, and the distinguished Blanket Cylinders series. The volume also features an essay by Chihuly on his attraction to the blankets and his creative process in developing the series.

".Twenty-six years ago, Dale Chihuly attended an exhibition of Navajo blankets and was completely captivated. The brilliant colors, bold geometric designs, and intricate weaving of the textiles appealed to his interest in the interplay of strong color and shape. Chihuly later studied the designs, patterns, colors, and origins of trade blankets, recognizing their significance in history and the differences between their machine-made origin and those of the hand-made blankets. Soon after, Chihuly began to create a series of glass cylinders that explore the blankets' beauty -- a pursuit he continued to perfect for twenty years -- while acquiring more than six hundred trade blankets in his private collection. This artistic enterprise has culminated in this outstanding volume, its images honoring the history of an extraordinary culture and presenting the artist's accomplished interpretations of it. 'Chihuly's Pendletons' features historical photographs, selections from Chihuly's own trade blanket collection, and the distinguished Blanket Cylinders series."
