Atlantis Persian

2017 Chihuly Workshop Studio Edition

Atlantis Persian

8 x 10 x 10"

An elegant expression of form and color, Atlantis Persian reveals the opulence and mysterious depths of Chihuly’s Persian series.

The entire form is wrapped in brilliant shades of green and transparent blue. These exquisite lines, called a body wrap, radiate from its epicenter before rippling and folding in upon themselves. A royal blue lip wrap applied to the composition’s outer edge articulates its gentle, undulating energy. The soft, cool bending of color and light creates a luminous quiet—a tranquil fluidity forged in glass.

Every year, Chihuly creates four Studio Editions, representing Chihuly’s most distinctive series. As every piece is handblown, your artwork may vary slightly in size, color, and shape. Small blemishes or imperfections in the glass are part of the glass blowing process and add to the individual characteristics of each piece.

Includes the Chihuly Workshop publication Chihuly Persians, with an essay by Davira S. Taragin and a DVD informing the series.

"We came up with this technique where we'd lay out little bits of glass on the steel table to create a pattern or drawing, and then pick it up with molten glass, and then blow that glass into a form"

Additional Insights

Chihuly’s iconic Persian series is steeped in history while continuously evolving in form and color. Art historian Tina Oldknow, formerly of the Corning Museum of Glass, notes, “The sources of his Persians are classical Greek, Persian, Byzantine, Islamic, Venetian, and art nouveau, together representing an incredibly fertile palimpsest of ideas and influences.”
