In 1981, as the Macchia series was in its developmental stage, Dale Chihuly began methodically exploring the chemical properties of colors to create compatible combinations. These "color studies" went on to inform Chihuly's technique of mixing opaque and transparent colors with glass powders, dusts, and jimmies (small chunks of colored glass), which has defined this monumental series for thirty-eight years.

The asymmetrical form of the 2019 Eucalyptus Macchia Studio Edition presents a lime-green landscape punctuated by bursts of saffron orange, canary yellow, and oxblood red. The shallow profile of this two-piece composition allows the interior panorama of rich marine blue to interact and complement the verdant exterior. A departure from Chihuly's classic Macchia forms, the Eucalyptus Macchia demonstrates feathery, light qualities typically blown in Chihuly's "pheasant" tradition.

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 Chihuly: On Fire, a 212-page book profiling Chihuly's iconic series and featuring a comprehensive essay by acclaimed author Henry Adams.

"The 'Macchia' series began with my waking up one day wanting to use all 300 of the colors in the hot shop."
