Ivory Luster Basket
Ivory Luster Basket
Through the time-honored process of glassblowing, using few tools and relying on the forces of nature and human breath, Dale Chihuly achieved his vision to reimagine the aging and slumping Native American baskets he so admired.
The 2018 Studio Edition Ivory Luster Basket, a strong statement in its simplicity, embodies the ephemeral, amorphous, and free-form attributes for which Chihuly’s forty-year-old Basket series is known. A thin veil of glass, stretched taut around the breath that initiated it, creates a spacious interior in which rest two smaller Basket elements, each varying in degrees of translucency and opacity. An oxblood wrap, beginning at the lip of each of the three forms, continues in a graceful, arcing extension that accentuates the dimensional presence of the entire composition.

Every year, Chihuly creates new 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.

“I had seen some beautiful Northwest Coast Indian baskets at the Washington State Historical Society, and I was struck by the grace of their slumped, sagging forms. I wanted to capture this grace in glass.”
