“ The Macchia series began with my waking up one day wanting to use all 300 of the colors in the hotshop. . Like much of my work, the series inspired itself. The unbelievable combinations of color— that was the driving force.”MACCHIAS
SE F A ORMS“ I love to walk along the beach and go to the ocean. And glass itself,of course, is so much like water. If you let it go on its own, it almostends up looking like something that came from the sea.”
Chihuly’ s artwork is not onlyW vibrant and full of color, it also dynamic and ever changing. InA many cases it is designedL specifically for the space it willL be exhibited in. His exhibits andE the artwork itself are a result of teamwork collaboration.XHIBITIONS
