The first edition of Chihuly was received with unanimous and overwhelming praise. This revised and expanded Second Edition, published in 1997 and now available once again, includes additional images that further illuminate the brilliance of Dale Chihuly (b. 1941), the premier contemporary artist working in glass.
For some 30 years, Chihuly has dazzled critics and the public around the world. His genius has revolutionised the glass medium itself. A cofounder of the Pilchuck Glass School, north of Seattle, Chihuly's work includes blown, cast, and stained glass as well as his famous multipart sets, complex groupings, and inventive installations. Donald Kuspit's essay, an illustrated chronology, and valuable appendixes make this book essential for collectors, curators, and glass artists.
