An Artist Escape, With Dale Chihuly

The spectacular artistry of the American glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, can be best described as otherworldly, and uniquely his own. His creations burst forth with color, excitement and an energy that cannot be contained. The organic nature of his forms, are very free flowing, almost as if they were born from a fantastical wand, that was flicked through the air.

Chihuly's works have found their way into various museum installations, and permanent collections around the globe. Several hotels, and public gardens display these pieces as well. Check out this interesting interview with the artist himself.


As you can see, Chihuly's work is not at all shy, or pretentious. His gorgeous bowls, chandeliers, and undulating objects are simply sublime. Do try to see some of these spectacular exhibitions in person, to experience the glorious feast of color and light. We guarantee, you won't be disappointed. Ciao! Al
