Chihuly: Gardens & Glass

chihuly.jpg Chihuly: Gardens & Glass contains enlighting interviews, interesting information and beautiful photographs from Chihuly's outdoor glass installations from around the world. He takes glass making to uncharted territory by mimicking foliage and flowers with the most colorful glass you've ever seen. He creates art that blends seamlessly with nature, sprouting from trees or gently "floating" on water. His otherworldly forms seem right at home in our gardens and landscapes and always a delight to see.

chihulyfinland.JPGChihuly Over Venice: Nuutajärvi, Finland: Part I, June 1995 is an oversize unbound book containing photographs from Chihuly's breathtaking outdoor glass installations and huge chandeliers (later used in his Venice installations), paintings, and sketches based on his time working in Finland.

I highly recommend watching Chihuly Over Venice which follows Chihuly around Venice as he and his dedicated team of artists actually assemble his magnificent installations in their intended Italian locations.
