Dale Chihuly is now widely recognized as the world’s premier glass artist and has been the subject of many books, critical essays and PBS specials. Chihuly glass sculpture can be found in over 150 major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Louvre. In 1969 he established the Glass Department at the Rhode Island School of Design, where he taught until 1983. Chihuly now resides in his native Pacific Northwest where he continues to develop his own work at the Pilchuck Glass School, which he helped to found in 1971.

Description: A portfolio of 28 beautiful photos and drawings from Dale Chihuly’s experience in Finland in June 1995. Each measures approximately 12×20 inches and is printed on heavy paper stock, housed in a Chihuly hand decorated folding case. Chihuly decided to create his fantastic Chandeliers in the world’s great glass centers, and he began in the tiny village of Nuutajarvi, north of Helsinki. Working with the artisans of the Hackman factory, well known for its production of modernist designs, Chihuly and his American glassblowers created the first of fourteen Chandeliers that were to be installed in Venice the following year. This oversize portfolio documents that exuberant session. Photographs record the installations that temporarily transformed the Finnish landscape. Also included are reproductions of the drawings that inspired the glass works. Some very monor wear to case, otherwise fine, with each plate bright and clean.
