Mandarin Orange Basket

2019 Chihuly Workshop Studio Edition

Mandarin Orange Basket

6½ x 10 x 10½"

Dale Chihuly's approach to glassblowing—allowing glass to find its own form by using only breath, fire, and centrifugal force—may best be demonstrated in his exquisitely organic series Baskets. Intrigued by the relationship between form and color, Chihuly has further explored the series through intimate groupings of the malleable and misshapen forms.

The 2019 Mandarin Orange Basket Studio Edition embodies Chihuly's visionary dialogue of form, color, and space. Vibrant orange elements combine to create a dynamic microcosm. Beginning at the top of each element, a saturation of deep orange gracefully transitions to transparency, juxtaposing the composition's substance and ethereal quality. A teal green lip winds and wraps along its contours, further articulating its physicality.

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 Color and Form, a 120-page book with essays by Davira S. Taragin.

"His glass 'Baskets' were shown in groups, stacked one inside the other. They became an environment into which an audience might be drawn, within which, if succumbed to, there was the power to alter consciousness."
