Description

Description

The 2019 Mandarin Orange Basket Studio Edition embodies Chihuly's visionary dialogue of form, colour, and space. Vibrant orange elements combine to create a dynamic microcosm. Beginning at the top of each element, a saturation of deep orange gracefully transitions to transparency, juxtaposing the composition's substance and ethereal quality. A teal green lip winds and wraps along its contours, further articulating its physicality.

Dale Chihuly's approach to glassblowing—allowing glass to find its own form by using only breath, fire, and centrifugal force—may best be demonstrated in his exquisitely organic series Baskets. Intrigued by the relationship between form and colour, Chihuly has further explored the series through intimate groupings of the malleable and misshapen forms.

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 Chihuly: On Fire, a 212-page book profiling Chihuly's iconic series and featuring a comprehensive essay by acclaimed author Henry Adams.
