TUSCAN RED SEAFORM

It was a seemingly natural progression for Dale Chihuly’s Basket series to evolve into a more abstract series titled Seaforms. The transition was not intentional, but merely a continuation of Chihuly’s exploratory and curious nature.

The charged red palette of the 2018 Studio Edition Tuscan Red Seaform transitions from deep burgundy to a burnished, fiery red-orange and revisits aesthetics found in Chihuly’s earlier Seaforms. Varying shades of red body wrap sweep across the surface of the form, which is then twisted and capped with a teal green lip wrap. The resulting effect creates an exquisite mosaic-like pattern that is emphasized by the artwork’s rippling form. The simple and complex are juxtaposed and defined in this rich, elemental Studio Edition.

Accompanied by a 10 x 10″ Plexiglas vitrine with a black base for display

Every year, Chihuly creates four Studio Editions, representing Chihuly’s most distinctive series. As every piece is handblown, your artwork may vary slightly in size, color, and shape. Small blemishes or imperfections in the glass are part of the glass blowing process and add to the individual characteristics of each piece.

Includes a copy of Chihuly Seaforms, a compact book including a DVD and an essay by Davira S. Taragin describing the historical and aesthetic contexts of this series.

CAPRI BLUE SEAFORM

Dale Chihuly’s organic shapes and seductive colors combine to create Seaforms suspended in perfectly weightless moments. The sensual and fluent waves of the two-piece composition Capri Blue Seaform, a 2018 Studio Edition, intensify the play of shadow and light between the ripples of the body, while its raised body wrap encompasses each element to accentuate the artwork’s aqueous spirit and profound depth. Contrasting tones of transparent and opaque blue harmonize to create an immersive, optical aura that is at once organic and transcendent.

IVORY LUSTER BASKET

Through the time-honored process of glassblowing, using few tools and relying on the forces of nature and human breath, Dale Chihuly achieved his vision to reimagine the aging and slumping Native American baskets he so admired.

The 2018 Studio Edition Ivory Luster Basket, a strong statement in its simplicity, embodies the ephemeral, amorphous, and free-form attributes for which Chihuly’s forty-year-old Basket series is known. A thin veil of glass, stretched taut around the breath that initiated it, creates a spacious interior in which rest two smaller Basket elements, each varying in degrees of translucency and opacity. An oxblood wrap, beginning at the lip of each of the three forms, continues in a graceful, arcing extension that accentuates the dimensional presence of the entire composition.

LAGUNA PERSIAN

Composed of two abstract and beguiling elements, the 2018 Studio Edition Laguna Persian communicates an ancient sensibility through a contemporary form. Bathed in lush emerald green, the artwork’s undulating waves are wound with a sinuous body wrap of golden amber, chartreuse, and oxblood red to reveal an internal candescence and inviting contrast. Spanish yellow lip wraps illuminate the scalloped edges of Laguna Persian, a Studio Edition that, through its back-to-back composition, conveys an intuitive exuberance for environment and form.

Five-color serigraph with handwork

Mystic Cove By Dale Chihuly

Six-color serigraph with handwork

37″H x 25″W

Edition of 125; signed in paint and numbered in pencil

Printed by Modern Multiples, Los Angeles, CA, 2017

Glass itself is so much like water. If you let it go on its own it almost ends up looking like something that came from the sea. – Dale Chihuly

Chihuly’s Niijima Floats are recognized for their remarkably large scale, form and rich color combinations. Significant to the artist’s career, these have been documented as the largest blown glass sculptures ever made. Developed in 1991, this series has been exhibited in numerous site specific installations including The New York Botanical Garden and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.

Highlighting the impressive series known as Niijima Floats, Mystic Cove exemplifies Chihuly’s spontaneous approach to drawing using layers of colors. The background is a blend of cool aquamarine colors with a Float defined by silver ink and pearl white handwork. Several more layers of green ‘dots’ delineate the interior of the Float. The end result is a six- color serigraph with handwork achieving an intimate and alternative connection to Chihuly’s innovative work in glass. Mystic Cove is signed in custom acrylic paint and numbered in pencil.

Viola’s Reeds By Dale Chihuly

Three-color serigraph with handwork

37″H x 25″W

Edition of 100; signed in paint and numbered in pencil

Printed by Modern Multiples, Los Angeles, CA, 2016

“In Finland, we started making these long, cylindrical pieces that looked like spears. This was an exciting new form. It was the first time we ever made anything like that. They can be taken anywhere—they can go outside. They are very strong pieces, and they are very dramatic.” —Dale Chihuly

Viola’s Reeds captures Chihuly’s spontaneous approach to work on paper while revisiting the Reed form he created in Finland in 1995. The composition features a collection of tapered Reeds, accentuated by purple handwork, on a metallic background shifting from violet to blue violet. Viola’s Reeds is hand-signed by Chihuly and numbered in pencil.
