From the resplendent towers in Chihuly in the Light of Jerusalem 2000 to the ceiling sculpture made of over 2,000 hand-blown forms in the lobby of the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas, the audacity and inventiveness of Chihuly’s vision comes across on every page. A splendid companion volume to Abrams’ very successful Chihuly, which offered a general overview, this new book, with its focus on his most imposing creations and its essays by Barbara Rose and Dale M. Lanzone, will delight all art lovers, collectors, curators, and glass artists.

He has won numerous awards and in 1986 became one of only four Americans to be honored by a one-man exhibition at the Muse des Arts Dcoratifs in the Louvre, Paris. Chihuly is co-founder of the Pilchuck Glass School outside Seattle, which draws students and teachers from around the globe.
