Event Description

Dale Chihuly is the world’s foremost glass artist and this exhibition of his Macchia series celebrates his remarkable powers of innovation and imagination. In Italian ‘macchia’ has come to suggest the spontaneous outpouring of artistic sensibility and by choosing the title Macchia for his works, Chihuly pays tribute to the Italian glass blowers on the island of Murano near Venice. He has adapted the Venetian practice of blowing bubbles of molten glass into metal molds for his own dynamic purposes and then spinning the vessel open in the final moments of forming to awesome proportions. In these works, Chihuly encapsulates the traditional meanings of macchia: spontaneity, the close association between the artist and nature, and artistic collaboration with technique rather than control of it. Chihuly often refers to the mystery and magic of glass. The transformation of sand and a few other elements into glass seems truly magical.
