Medici MACCHIA
STUDIO EDITION

“Chihuly draws on the inherent power of glass to condition light so as to envelop the forms and the space they enclose with an atmosphere that transforms the object from static representation into an evocative intimation of some phenomenon sensed in nature or daily life.” – Linda Norden, Dale Chihuly: Glass

A bold series devoted to unconventional color combinations, the Macchia have allowed Dale Chihuly to explore and apply an ever-broadening color palette, using these intense hues to manipulate and refract light. “You see color as you’ve never seen it before, as if color itself were floating in the air. It is an elevating experience,” Henry Geldzahler, a former curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, has said.

The 2020 Medici Macchia Studio Edition articulates Chihuly’s command of color and its dramatic interplay with transparency and light. Flushed in crimson, the composition has a momentum that is accelerated by red-hued pigment dusted between clouds of color, while speckles of chartreuse and saffron contribute contrast. A vivid golden yellow lip wrap pulses with the fluid movement of the sculpture.

HYACINTH BASKET
STUDIO EDITION

“With this series [Baskets], Chihuly liberated his glassblowing process from the restrictions of symmetry, allowing the glass to respond naturally to gravity.” – Vera White, writer

Dale Chihuly has long appreciated the artistry of textiles created by indigenous peoples, particularly the slumped form of woven fiber basketry affected by time and exposure to natural elements. To create characteristics in glass similar to these time-worn baskets, Chihuly relies on the organic energies of heat and gravity alone. He utilizes this fundamental approach – a dialogue with “process” rather than final form – throughout much of his work.

Hyacinth Basket, a 2020 Studio Edition, exemplifies the delicate form and fluidity found in Chihuly’s Basket series. The Basket is composed of two pieces, its opaque cobalt blue interior element finding its resting place within a larger form that transitions from deep cobalt to an ethereal transparency. An indigo lip wrap extends and arcs around the surface of each element, further emphasizing its multidimensional composition.

MONARCH SEAFORM
STUDIO EDITION

“Chihuly devises a technical means to replicate not a visual source itself but its gestural equivalent in glass.” – Linda Norden, Dale Chihuly: Glass

As Dale Chihuly continued to explore the Basket series, he increasingly gained more control over the glass and its response to breath, heat, gravity, and gestural manipulation. Over time, he experimented with the use of an optical mold to introduce a textural ribbed effect that also strengthened the glass form. These undulating, organic forms conjured abstract sea life; thus Chihuly’s Seaform series was born.

The two-piece 2020 Monarch Seaform Studio Edition illustrates the wavelike motion of the series’ quixotically abstract forms. Each golden-orange element is grazed by a lapis-blue lip wrap and shows one of two variations of a sienna-colored body wrap. The larger, exterior element presents Chihuly’s traditional wrap while the interior form reveals a distinctly staccato wrap. Together, the elements narrate an asymmetrical yet eloquent balance.

SPRING GREEN PERSIAN
STUDIO EDITION

“Their energy expands and explodes the fundamental spherical or cylindrical shapes of blown glass into eccentric and unforeseen new forms.” – Barbara Rose, art historian and critic

While conceptualizing the Basket, Seaform, and Macchia series, Dale Chihuly explored new ways to create thinner, stronger compositions. He discovered that optic molds used during the early stages of the glassblowing process resulted in “ribs” that provide the structural support necessary to manipulate the glass, allowing the twisted and arced characteristics that distinguish Chihuly’s agile Persian series. Debuted in the mid-1980s, this series ignites the imagination with its seductive, fragile appearance.

A 2020 Studio Edition, Spring Green Persian is a two-piece composition that expresses the wild asymmetry of this exotic series. Concentric bands of opaque apple green envelop the fan-shaped amber-green element with a hypnotic rhythm. An extraordinary form rests within its folds, unfurling in hues of rose-gold and pale green. Skimming the edge of each element, a dark green lip wrap emphasizes the dynamic forms.
