Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like much of Dale Chihuly's work, Chihuly Over Venice was not simply an installation--it was an enthralling experience. This colorful journal documents the culmination of Chihuly's artistic odyssey from his Seattle hotshop to four of the greatest glassmaking centers in the world: Nuutajarvi, Finland; Waterford, Ireland; Monterrey, Mexico; and finally Venice, Italy. Chihuly and his American team worked in each country with local glassblowers to create a series of Chandeliers. The outcome was distinctively "Chihuly": fourteen brilliant Chandeliers graced the campos and canals of Venice for a remarkable time in September 1996. Full-color photographs record for readers the installations as they were assembled and completed along the waterways. An extensive chronology provides background on the artist's career.

Synopsis:

Bound like an artist's sketchbook with a tipped-in image of a Venice Canal, gondola and glass sculpture, "Chihuly over Venice" documents the culmination of this amazing artistic odyssey that took the artist from his Seattle Boathouse hot shop to Nuutajarvi, Finland; Waterford, Ireland; Monterrey, Mexico; and finally Venice. Writer William Warmus chronicles the culmination of this two-year project with his diary entries. Full-color photographs record for readers the installations as they were assembled. An extensive chronology traces the artist's career.
