In the latest #ChihulyWebShorts, learn about Chihuly’s newest body of work: Chihuly Merletto. This take on the “Basket” series uses an ancient Italian caneworking technique to produce lace-like patterns.
See some behind-the-scenes views here of Chihuly directing the glassblowing process, the way that he communicates via his drawings, and his inspiration behind the whole work.
Chihuly Merletto will be premiering at Traver Gallery in Seattle, Washington on June 4th, 2020. This show will feature a virtual tour and digital catalog for those who can't visit in person. Learn more about this upcoming exhibition here.
