The set is in amazing condition and extremely bright in person. Chihuly's penchant for combining elements together to create a whole is delicately expressed in the handblown Blue Sky Basket Set, and the ethereal transparency of the piece invites marvel. Two pale blue vessels with black lip wraps yield to gravity, their transparent forms exhibiting the subtle characteristics of Chihuly's Basket series. One piece seems to float inside the other while fine lip wraps arc across the composition, adding a refined sense of grace to this 2004 Studio Edition.
Blue Sky Basket Set measures approximately eight inches in height and is signed by the artist. A Plexiglas vitrine is included for presentation and the 148-page publication Chihuly: Baskets will enhance your appreciation of this wonderful series.
