Byzantine Blue Persian
Byzantine Blue Persian
With its sweeping arcs and arabesques, Byzantine Blue Persian is evidence of Chihuly’s predilection for glass as a vehicle for color and the transmission of light.
It is the first Persian edition composed of three individual elements. The largest, sheer pearly blue at its center, fans and opens out to a deeper blue rim conveying its swaying spines and graceful movement. Within it rests a dazzlingly red-striped form that provides an inviting and contrasting dimension. The composition’s final element, a rich blue, expressive, and gently coiled serpentine form, reiterates the poetic suppleness of the sculpture in its entirety.

Chihuly’s Persian series originated in 1986 as a search for new forms. Early works in the series were oddly shaped and intensely colored. Former curator Tina Oldknow notes, “The earliest Persians looked ‘archaeological’ to Chihuly, like excavated ancient treasures. Chihuly sensed that these objects represented a formal direction in his art that was experimental, new, and exotic.”
