Smithsonian Associates is offering one classic glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly, the 1996 Studio Edition of Buttercup Yellow Persian with Red Lip Wrap. This glass sculpture is drawn from Chihuly’s acclaimed Persians series–a culmination of his fascination with spontaneous forms and bold colors. Each form is hand blown so no two are exactly alike.
Dale Chihuly is world-renowned for his extraordinary glass sculptures. Born in 1941 in Tacoma, Washington, he is credited with breathing life into the now-flourishing world of blown glass. He studied at the University of Wisconsin with Harvey Littleton, and at the Venini Glass Factory in Venice, Italy (the first American to be granted such access). In 1971, he co-founded the Pilchuck Glass Center in Stanwood, Washington. His works are in collections of more than 200 museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery.
Glass sculpture is shipped with its own Plexiglas vitrine and display platform. Due to the fragile nature of the sculpture a $100 shipping and packing fee will apply to purchase.
