The captivating color combinations of Dale Chihuly’s Macchia series—exuberant and unexpected—achieve the artist’s vision of a visceral experience in color and light. With opaque and translucent hues layered one over the other, the works in this series appear to glow with an internal radiance. Art historian Robert Hobbs’s description of Chihuly’s Macchia communicates the brilliance of the pieces: “Seen under bright light they look like nature caught on fire, nature in molten flux, nature in the process of being created.”
The Zinnia Macchia, one of the four 2014 Chihuly Workshop Studio Editions, is a luminous and vibrantly colorful piece from the Macchia series. Small spots of glimmering green, red, yellow, and orange move across the vivid chartreuse surface. Contrasting these lush colors, the body wrap emphasizes the fluctuating movement of the sculpture’s supple form. A lemon yellow lip wrap outlines the edge of the piece, which bows dramatically to allow full view of the dazzling raspberry interior.
This handblown Studio Edition is signed by Chihuly and measures approximately nine inches in height. It is accompanied by a custom-designed display vitrine
