Publisher Comments:

Dale Chihuly, the hugely popular artist who works in glass, celebrates his 70th birthday in 2011. Tacoma Art Museum, in his hometown, owns more than 150 examples of his work and is mounting an exhibition in his honor. Both this book and the exhibition showcase Chihuly's enduring interest in the arts and natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest, which are a major influence on his work. 

For the first time, Dale Chihuly: A Celebration focuses on the importance of these influences. From Native American baskets to wool trade blankets, the gritty Tacoma of the 1960s, and Puget Sound, this exhibition and book follow Chihuly's development and accomplishments and how he grew and evolved while maintaining close ties to Tacoma. The essay by curator Rock Hushka traces Chihuly's creative process and the ways in which his abiding interest in the American Northwest enriches his work.

Synopsis:

These three volumes, housed in a stunning slipcase, bring together many of renowned glass artist Dale Chihulyand#8217;s most impressive works on paper. Organized across mediumand#151;graphite, charcoal, and acrylicand#151;Chihuly on Paper is the single most comprehensive book covering what the artist considers to be the most direct representation of the energy behind his artistic process. Chihuly (b. 1941) describes this energy as and#147;spontaneous, fast, immediate,and#8221; and the gorgeous reproductions here convey this immediacy as never before. The excitement of Chihulyand#8217;s work on paper is in its unpredictability and organic expressivenessand#151;the same elements that distinguish the artistand#8217;s signature work in glass. An essay by Nathan Kernan explores these compelling works of art.

Synopsis:

Chihuly Projects is a fascinating retrospective that spans more than thirty years of Dale Chihuly's career in glassblowing and installation. This 348-page volume illustrates the evolution of Chihuly's daring and inventive projects--from his first experiments at the Rhode Island School of Design to his most recent large-scale architectural installations. Chihuly has approached artistic boundaries as challenges to be overcome, installing seemingly impossible sculptures in locations around the world. Chihuly Projects profiles thirty-three of these installations, inviting readers to stretch beyond their relationship with light, color, design, and architecture to gain from Chihuly's dramatic alliances between glass and space and people.
