The companion book for the critically acclaimed exhibition of Chihuly in Kew Gardens
Chihuly at Kew: Reflections on nature is a celebration of the work of iconic artist Dale Chihuly, who once again is exhibiting his luminous artworks in Kew s spectacular landscape, featuring pieces never seen before in the UK.
The book showcases these utterly unique artworks across one of London s most spectacular landscapes, in a perfect marriage of art, science, and nature.

Highlights include the Drawings and Rotolo series, some of the most technically challenging work that Chihuly has ever created, as well as Seaforms, undulating forms that conjure underwater life. A specially designed sculpture suspended from the ceiling of the newly restored Temperate House provides one of the moss stunning features of the exhibition and book.
