Unexpected combinations of color in Dale Chihuly’s Macchia achieve the artist’s vision of a visceral experience in color and light. Molten glass is manipulated, as layer upon layer of colored pigments are added, to create works that are mottled yet ablaze with intensity. Chihuly’s inventiveness and love of challenges are key in the development of these extraordinary and multihued sculptures.
The graceful, asymmetrical profile of the Aurora Macchia Studio Edition offers simultaneous views of its interior and exterior color palettes: a rich cerulean blue spills from within the sculpture, in contrast to its coral red exterior. As light shifts through these two palettes, the true coaxial nature of the combination is revealed, setting the interior aglow with a soft and mesmerizing luminosity. A dark lapis lip wrap defines the sculpture’s extraordinary form.

“Chihuly draws on the inherent power of glass to condition light so as to envelop the forms and the space they enclose with an atmosphere that transforms the object from static representation into an evocative intimation of some phenomenon sensed in nature or daily life.”
–Linda Norden, Dale Chihuly: Glass
