Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chihuly devotees, gardeners, and those new to the artistic world of glass will be enthralled with this eclectic volume combining ninety-seven stunning full-size images with personal insights from the artist. Chihuly is credited with introducing fine-art collectors and new fans to an art form that is almost 5,000 years old. Photographs of natural light playing on the brilliant colors and unique shapes of Chihuly's work survey his memorable outdoor installations around the globe. Vintage postcards from Chihuly's archives and images from his exhibition at the historic Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago round out this pictorial collection. Quotes from the artist and thoughtful essays provide a backdrop for his work as well as a glimpse into the Chihuly process.

Book News Annotation:

This catalog of glass under glass features Barbara Rose discussing more than 30 Chihuly installations scattered among exotic plants, entwined in branches and trunks, suspended in space, or floating in artificial ponds—all under the glass expanse of Chicago's Garfield Park Conservatory. The huge, full-page pictures (15x10<">) show the installations with stunning color and clarity. The book is issued in conjunction with the 2001-2002 exhibition at the Conservatory.
