Chihuly: An Artist Collects
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.
