Early in the developmental stages of the Basket series Chihuly began to explore translucency. With an intent to lure the eye past the exterior wall of the sculpture and into its interior environment, he combined small opaque elements within a larger transparent element.
Channel Mist Basket is a tonal study of this serene environmental concept. Interior elements of pale, opaque robin’s egg blue rest within an expansive transparent aquamarine Basket while a ribbon of oxblood red wraps the lip of each vessel and winds around each form to create spatial definition within this three-piece composition.
