Dale Chihuly (born September 20, 1941), is an American glass sculptor and entrepreneur. His works are considered unique to the field of blown glass, “moving it into the realm of large-scale sculpture”. The technical difficulties of working with glass forms are considerable, yet Chihuly uses it as the primary medium for installations and environmental artwork.
During my visit to his Glass Works Studio in Seattle Washington Saturday I was thoroughly amazed by the beauty and diversity in his collection. Every visual dimension was explored. Some of his ceilings were masterpieces in their own right.
