Studio Editions by Dale Chihuly

Eucalyptus Macchia, 2019

In 1981, as the Macchia series was in its developmental stage, Dale Chihuly began methodically exploring the chemical properties of colors to create compatible combinations. These “color studies” went on to inform Chihuly’s technique of mixing opaque and transparent colors with glass powders, dusts, and jimmies (small chunks of colored glass), which has defined this monumental series for thirty-eight years.

The asymmetrical form of the 2019 Eucalyptus Macchia Studio Edition presents a lime-green landscape punctuated by bursts of saffron orange, canary yellow, and oxblood red. The shallow profile of this two-piece composition allows the interior panorama of rich marine blue to interact and complement the verdant exterior. A departure from Chihuly’s classic Macchia forms, the Eucalyptus Macchia demonstrates feathery, light qualities typically blown in Chihuly’s “pheasant” tradition.

Eucalyptus Macchia is an edition of 150. Chihuly’s signature is engraved on this handblown work, which stands approximately six and a half inches tall. It is accompanied by a 12 x 12″ acrylic vitrine with a black base for display and a copy of the book Chihuly: On Fire.

Periwinkle Persian, 2019

Dale Chihuly discovered early in his career that through human breath, heat, and gravity, he was able to achieve forms in glass that had not previously existed. The Persian series’ animated grace was realized through the exploration of this spontaneous and organic process.

Periwinkle Persian, a 2019 Studio Edition, is a provocative study of suspended motion. The elements in this two-piece composition illustrate the fluid gestures and the effects of gravity, both used to shape handblown glass. Its translucent violet exterior element with a pale lilac body wrap and contrasting blue lip wrap cradles a coiled and textured element that propels the energetic momentum of the entire sculpture.

Periwinkle Persian is an edition of 250. Chihuly’s signature is engraved on this handblown work, which stands approximately six and a half inches tall. It is accompanied by a 12 x 12″ acrylic vitrine with a black base for display and a copy of the book Chihuly Persians.

Flamingo Macchia, 2019

The Macchia series provided Dale Chihuly with a blank canvas allowing him to express his deep appreciation of color. To realize his vision, he developed a new application technique, combining opaque and transparent pigments through which he would manipulate light.

The 2019 Flamingo Macchia Studio Edition embodies the radiant properties of glass through its unrestrained palette of colors. Varying hues of rose, blue, and orange daub the multifaceted exterior while a spiraling red tonal body wrap emphasizes the ebb and flow of the rippled form. The dazzling lemon-yellow interior pulls light within the sculpture to create a dualistic illusion of opacity and transparency. A black lip wrap tethers these flamboyant exchanges of color.

Flamingo Macchia is an edition of 175. Chihuly’s signature is engraved on this handblown work, which stands approximately six and a half inches tall. It is accompanied by a 10 x 10″ acrylic vitrine with a black base for display and a copy of the book Chihuly: On Fire.

Mandarin Orange Basket, 2019

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 color, Chihuly has further explored the series through intimate groupings of the malleable and misshapen forms.

The 2019 Mandarin Orange Basket Studio Edition embodies Chihuly’s visionary dialogue of form, color, 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.

Mandarin Orange Basket is an edition of 150. Chihuly’s signature is engraved on this handblown work, which stands approximately six and a half inches tall. It is accompanied by a 12 x 12″ acrylic vitrine with a black base for display and a copy of the book Chihuly: On Fire.
