Item Details
Description
Dale Chihuly
(American, b. 1941)
Venetian, 1990
Hand-blown & applied glass
37" x 11" x 13 1/2"

"Tensions abound in the Venetians. Every attachment seems to indicate flux, a relentless organic force impinging on the physical integrity of the classic form. Hot glass simulates or is affected by natural properties and realities -- its fluidity and the spontaneity of working equates to the mysterious metamorphoses of living organisms, while physical forces of gravity can be utilized or challenged to suggest an independent vitalism. The vegetative and biomorphic decoration and ornamentation of the Venetians seem to both confirm and contradict the laws of nature. The works expand aggressively into space, like a living and growing thing. And like living things, eachwork of the Venetians has an individual character, a personality if you will, much more so than Chihuly's other series." - Ron Glowen, from Dale Chihuly Japan 1990

Chihuly's Venetian series was begun in collaboration with Italian master Lino Tagliapietra, and refined with assistance from Pilchuck artist and leading Chihuly gaffer Richard Royal. The Venetians were initially inspired Art Deco Venetian glass, but later grew more eccentric, with references to a wider variety of European decorative arts including French Art Nouveau forms. The Venetians remain among Dale Chihuly's most vibrant and popular major series.

As is characteristic of the Venetians, Chihuly here has used a symmetrical base and added extravagant organic flourishes. A large composition of four spiraling free-form yellow leaves and a twisting orange coil applied around a cylinder vase with gold foil inclusions. Incised signature and date at the base of the coil.
