Echoing the dynamic energy and bright color pallet we've come to expect from his modern era glass art, Dale Chihuly's 2018 "Celestial Baskets" screenrpint is a quintessential example of the artist's aesthetic. Baskets in tones of yellow, rose gold, white, and blue are set against a rich background of deep purple and indigo. Chihuly has embellished each print with original hand-painted details as well as a hand painted signature on the bottom front of the piece. Although Chihuly's early drawing were a perfunctory tool to communicate his vision to his glassblowing team, he has transformed his two dimensional practice into innovative works of fine art in their own right.

About Dale Chihuly

Dale Chihuly, widely revered as a preeminent figure in contemporary glass art on a global scale, is celebrated for his grandiose sculptures and captivating installations. His name is synonymous with artistic brilliance, prominently featured in iconic settings like the Bellagio's floral garden in Las Vegas and the Rotunda Chandelier at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Today, Chihuly's glass creations are cherished treasures among aficionados of decorative arts.

Despite initially lacking enthusiasm for formal education, Chihuly invested significant time in academia, earning degrees in both scientific and artistic fields, with a focus on sculpture, from prestigious graduate institutions. While he initially explored interests in interior design and craftsmanship, his deepest passion has always been glass. As a Fulbright Fellow in the late 1960s and as an apprentice at the Venini Glass Factory in Venice, Chihuly honed his skills in Murano glasswork, playing a pivotal role in revitalizing the ancient art of glassblowing on a global scale.

Chihuly's monumental and intimate artworks adorn over 200 of the world's most esteemed decorative art collections, and he holds an impressive twelve honorary doctorates. His illustrious portfolio, spanning several decades, encompasses various series, including the Cylinders and Baskets from the 1970s, Macchia, Venetians, and Persians from the 1980s, Niijima Floats and Chandeliers from the 1990s, and the more recent Fiori series from the 2000s.

For over three decades, Chihuly has served as the artistic director of his team of craftsmen, a role he assumed following two accidents that left him blind in one eye and unable to manipulate the blowing tube. This transition provided him with a broader perspective on the potential of glasswork while preserving his distinctive style, marking an extraordinary chapter in his enduring artistic journey.
