Dale Chihuly (American, b. 1941), Red Oxide and Beige Seaform Set with Black Lip Wrap, 2000, blown glass, signed

Lofty says:

“Dale Chihuly loves walking on the beach and going to the ocean, and when he serendipitously began to create these shell-like vessels in gorgeous striated colors instead of forms that were meant to resemble baskets, they were a big hit. As he himself says, glass itself is much like water and when you let it go on its own, it begins to resemble something from the sea. One want to touch, examine and marvel over each element in this luscious grouping, like a collector of supernatural sea glass.” - Ursula LeBaron

About The Artist:

Dale Chihuly, an American blow glass pioneer, was born in Tacoma, Washington, in 1941. He graduated from the first glass program in the country at the University of Wisconsin, and continued his education at the Rhode Island School of Design where he founded and instructed a glass program. Chihuly has received a Fulbright Fellowship, twelve honorary doctorates, and two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. The artist has worked at the Venini glass factory in Venice, and also co-founded the Glass School in Washington State. Chihuly was integral to shifting attitudes about blown glass away from the category of craft and into the realm of fine art.

The "Seaforms" evolved from Chihuly's earlier "Basket" series. The artist was inspired by walking on the beach, where he realized, "If you work with hot glass and its natural properties, it begins to look like something that came from the sea."

This delicate, captivating Seaform Set, with its striking lip wrap, is a beautiful example of his most desirable work in this series.
