This large, beautifully produced volume is a companion to the acclaimed Chihuly, Volume 1 originally published in 1997, which covered the first 30 years of the artist’s career. Here, Donald Kuspit surveys the work of Dale Chihuly from 1997 to the present, a pivotal time in the artist’s career. Long established as one of the most significant artists to ever work in glass, Chihuly began at this point to increase the scale of his work, mounting large museum exhibitions. He brought his work outdoors, building monumental installations in historic cities and at 12 preeminent gardens in Europe and America. Chihuly has also focused on architectural commissions from all over the world, culminating with his designing an exhibition space for his work that includes a glasshouse and garden in Seattle. For all the many fans of Chihuly’s astonishing work, this book is the most sumptuous yet published.
