Golden Topaz Basket
Golden Topaz Basket
The Golden Topaz Basket presents a true depiction of Chihuly’s vision to create softened, assymetrical forms in glass.
Two honey-gold vessels constitute this intimate sculpture. A thin, dexterous ribbon of deep oxblood red, which occasionally strikes black in the annealing process, wraps around both elements to further define the forms. The smaller element nestles within the larger, creating a diaphanous and weightless introspective environment.

“I wanted to concentrate on using the fire from the furnace as well as centrifugal force and gravity. This meant letting glass find its own form.”
Upon seeing Northwest Coast Indian baskets at the Washington State History Museum in 1977, Chihuly was fascinated by the effect time had on the woven vessels—how the elements softened them, making them bend and slump. By exploring the malleable qualities of glass, Chihuly successfully achieved his own interpretive vision blown and spun in both delicate and vibrant tones.
