Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most comprehensive and handsome illustrated book on the world's foremost glass artist.

Book News Annotation:

New edition of a full-scale study of the work and career of the world- renowned glass artist. In his introductory essay, Kuspit (winner of the Frank Jewett Mather Award for distinction in art criticism) explores the relationship of medium to artistry and craftsmanship, as well as the dynamics of the creative process. Dramatic full-page colorplates offer a visual outline of Chihuly's lifelong fascination with glass and his use of it to produce a wide range of visual and emotional effects, as well as a documentation of the general public's acceptance of his work. A chronology of the artist's life is illustrated with b&w photographs.
