About this title
From Baskets and Seaform to Chandeliers and Towers, this 176 page book features subsections dedicated to many of Chihuly’s series including a dynamic pictorial chronology documenting the development and history of Chihuly’s most popular glass series.From the Inside Flap:
Fire - Dale Chihuly, the long-awaited companion book to Chihuly: Form From Fire, showcases the handblown glass sculptures of Dale Chihuly in over one hundred full-color photographs taken across the globe in locations reaching from Jerusalem to Indianapolis; Las Vegas to Chihuly's hometown of Tacoma, Washington. Following his nearly four-decade career, the photographs, selected by Chihuy himself, show the best of each series, offering a comprehensive visual overview of his work.In addition to a fresh look at earlier Chihuly works, Fire - Dale Chihuly features Chihuly series such as Fiori, Reeds, and Towers, which did not appear in Chihuly: Form From Fire. Selected quotes from critics, friends, and Chihuly himself introduce sections dedicated to Ice & Neon, Cylinders, Baskets, Seaforms, Macchia, Persians, Venetians, Ikebana, Niijima Floats, Chandeliers, Reeds, Towers, Jerusalem Cylinders, Fiori, and Installations.An essay by independent curator Margery Aronson, a Seattle resident since 1976, follows Chihuly's career in narrative format and highlights how his efforts have stimulated glassblowing culture around the world, but specifically in the Pacific Northwest through programs such as the Pilchuck Glass School, Hilltop Artists-in-Residence, and Seniors Making Art, which have inspired similar programs elsewhere.A chronology follows this presentation of the art of Dale Chihuly. Forty-eight additional photographs illustrate Chihuly's life, family and friends, and the book closes with a complete list of museums where his work can be found.
