Chihuly : Forms in Nature
A richly illustrated book exploring Chihuly's exhibition at the New York Botanical Gardens
Filled with panoramic vistas of garden landscapes transformed by Chihuly glass, this handsome book which accompanies a show at the New York Botanical Gardens celebrates the artist's brilliant use of form and colour.
In addition to photographs of the site-specific installations, this book features a series of dynamic drawings by Chihuly. As fluid and colorful as the sculptures themselves, these works offer a direct representation of the energy and inspiration behind Chihuly's artistic process. This volume, and the exhibition it accompanies, show how the Tiffany of our time has brought the art of glass-blowing and sculpting into the forefront of American art, introducing generations of people of all ages to the magic and beauty of glass.
