Story / Additional InfoSingle owner since purchase. This was bought on a trip from London to meet Dale Chihuly at his studio in Seattle. The trip was inspired by seeing the incredible blue chandelier hanging over the V&A entrance hall. We were invited to tour the entire studio and living spaces, and then offered a peek into Chihuly's private gallery where we saw this gorgeous emerald glass sculpture, and a large diptych painting. We bought both.

Dale Chihuly. American. Born 1941 in Tacoma, WA.Dale Chihuly is an American artist and glass sculptor. He uses glass as the primary medium for his installations and large-scale sculptures.With a Fulbright scholarship and a Louis Comfort Tiffany grant, Chihuly went to work at the Venini glass factory in Venice.There he observed the team approach to blowing glass, which is critical to the way he works today. Venice has always been the city crucial for Chihuly’s work. His Venetian series is an homage to Italian Art Deco vases, it’s aesthetic and symmetry. In 1971, Chihuly cofounded Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State. With this international glass center, Chihuly has led the avant-garde in the development of glass as a fine art.1976 a car accident left Chihuly blind in one eye, and thereafter he was dependent on assistants to execute his designs.Chihuly’s work is exhibited in more than 200 museum collections worldwide.He has been the recipient of many awards.Major collectors have paid millions of dollars for Chihuly glass installations.
