I want my work to appear like it came from nature, so that if someone found it on a beach or in the forest, they might think it belonged there.
American glass artist, Dale Chihuly, has been creating award winning glass sculptures for almost 50 years. After studying interior design in college, he enrolled in the first glass program in the country (University of Wisconsin) and then continued his studies at the Rhode Island School of Design. In 1968 he received a Fulbright scholarship and continued his exploration of glass work at the Venini glass factory in Venice. Since that time, his glass work has won numerous awards and been exhibited around the world.
We are in luck! His latest exhibition, Chihuly in the Garden, will be coming to the Denver Botanical Gardens this summer, from June 14th – November 30th. It is not to be missed!
