Dale Chihuly

Since we have a line of glass art fixtures and accessories inspired by Chihuly we thought we should delve into the source of that inspiration, Dale Chihuly. His bio from the website
“Born in 1941 in Tacoma, Washington, Dale Chihuly was introduced to glass while studying interior design at the University of Washington. After graduating in 1965, Chihuly enrolled in the first glass program in the country, at the University of Wisconsin. He continued his studies at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where he later established the glass program and taught for more than a decade.

In 1968, after receiving a Fulbright Fellowship, he went to work at the Venini glass factory in Venice. There he observed the team approach to blowing glass, which is critical to the way he works today. In 1971, Chihuly cofounded Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State. With this international glass center, Chihuly has led the avant-garde in the development of glass as a fine art.

His work is included in more than 200 hundred museum collections worldwide. He has been the recipient of many awards, including twelve honorary doctorates and two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts.”

His work is both mind blowing and thought provoking while providing a delight for the senses. The bad news? His pieces sell for up to $30,000 and not everyone has that kind of cash lying around. The good news? You can own a Chihuly inspired light fixture that is customizable. You pick the color combinations and it is made for you with at a cost that is a fraction of the Chihuly pieces. Below are just a few examples. To get more info/shopping visit our facebook page. You can also call the store at 502.454.8938
