Dale Chihuly (b. 1941) is the most important contemporary artist working in glass. Largely due to his influence, the United States boasts the most creative and prolific art glass movement in the world. In this sumptuously produced volume, distinguished art critic Donald Kuspit offers the first full-scale study of Chihuly and his innovative, avidly sought-after work.

Chihuly began to work in glass some 30 years ago, inspired by its unique ability to convey and transform color, light, and space. A co-founder of the esteemed Pilchuck Glass School, north of Seattle, which now attracts artists from around the world, Chihuly has produced works in blown, cast, and stained glass but is perhaps best known for his multi-part sets, complex groupings, and inventive architectural installations.

Donald Kuspit's important assay, illustrated with specially created photographs of Chihuly's spectacular glass sculpture, deals with the relationship of medium to artistry and craftsmanship as he explores the dynamics of the creative process.
