One of his most celebrated series, Dale Chihuly's Persians eloquently capture his love of compelling colors and energetic forms. In an essay from Chihuly Persians, art historian Tina Oldknow describes Chihuly's diverse color palette as "subtle, intense, simple, complicated, dark, light: Chihuly's colors are his signature.

The Chihuly Workshop Studio Edition, Aspen Green Persian, incorporates the opulent colors and exquisite lines of Chihuly's Persian series. This piece is highlighted by a radiant citron green, with delightful shades of yellow and red spots sprinkled on the back like lingering confetti from a late-night celebration. A contrasting red lip wrap delineates a softly rippled and folded edge, and thin lines radiate outward around the body, beginning at the ball foot, on which the Persian rests.

Handblown, and signed by Chihuly, Aspen Green Persian measures approximately nine inches across. Accompanying each Studio Edition are a Plexiglas vitrine and Chihuly Persians, a publication featuring an in-depth essay by Tina Oldknow, current curator of modern glass at the Corning Museum of Glass.

Aspen Green Persian is a festive blend of exotic form and intense color.

Chihuly, is known especially for his fine glass work and vibrantly colored original paintings, Dale Chihuly is one of the most famous modern American artists. While his glass work is what made him famous, Chihuly is truly a master of many mediums.
