2020 Studio Editions by Dale Chihuly
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.
