PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Dale Chihuly (b. 1941), one of the most inno­vative and iconic figures in contemporary art, is also an avid collector of everything from ceramic dogs to inkwells, vintage Christmas orna­ments, dollhouse furniture, plastic radios—you name it, Chihuly collects it. These everyday objects reflect the same playful, colorful aesthetic that can be seen in Dale Chihuly’s sculptures and installations.

Dale Chihuly is considered one of the most innovative and iconic figures in contemporary art. He’s also an avid collector of everything from ceramic dogs to inkwells, vintage Christmas ornaments, accordions, dollhouse furniture, plastic radios—you name it, Chihuly collects and thoughtfully displays it. These objects reflect the same playful, colorful aesthetic that can be seen in the artist’s sculptures and installations.

Fully illustrated, Chihuly: An Artist Collects includes an essay by the artist Bruce Helander, a friend of Chihuly’s who considers why people collect and explores the collections of other artists such as Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, and Damien Hirst.

“Dale Chihuly proudly and wholeheartedly joins this distinguished fraternity of gatherers by splitting his concentration between his phenomenal work as an artist and that of the consummate collector, who consistently seeks out the unusual and the hard to find, then professionally organizes and catalogs his discoveries, and finally displays his acquisitions in a jaw-dropping curatorial style.” —from the essay by Bruce Helander.

Hardcover, 160 pages.
