Description / Comments:
Size: Rectangular Folio. This is the 1996 second printing issued without a dust jacket, exhibition catalog for an exhibition of Chihuly’s work starting in April 1994 and ending in March 1996 in very as museums in Washington State and Montana. Turquoise cloth over boards, silver lettering, color illustration laid in on front cover, textured endpapers, 148 pages, essay on Chihuly’s work by Linda Nordin , Footnotes to the essay, full-color plates include those Chihuly’s glass baskets, baskets drawings, and shots of him working. This is a very nice copy, clean with no writing or marks, and the binding is sound. “Anyone at all familiar with Dale Chihuly’s work knows that the individual glass objects he creates represent only isolated moments in a complex creative continuum. Like stills or out-takes from endless film loop, a given’ Basket’ or’ Cylinder’ or ‘Float’ is as much an image as it is an object – a reference to all the forms that precede and follow it, to the action and process that go into its making and to the intuitive form-idea, which is its origin. Chihuly’s fondness for obsessively photographing his glass and his eagerness to have it described in words are only corollaries of his habit of nesting and stacking and gathering pieces into astonishing accumulations and his predilection for further enlarging these accumulations through their lighting and installation.” This is a heavy book which may require extra postage.
