Mandarin Yellow Persian

2016 Chihuly Workshop Studio Edition

Mandarin Yellow Persian

7½ x 10 x 9½"

This two-piece Mandarin Yellow Persian is a celebration of the unrestrained movement and energy for which this series is renowned.

An outer band of golden yellow rims the larger element, fading to an incandescent transparency as the dynamic white body wrap, with a fine, dark line running through it, emphasizes the sweeping motion of the sculpture’s ribbing and scallops. The application of the twisted body wrap to the smaller element perched within continues the symbiotic dialogue. Providing a complementary tension, a black lip wrap is executed on both elements.

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 the Chihuly Workshop publication Chihuly Persians, with an essay by Davira S. Taragin and a DVD informing the series.

“Their energy expands and explodes the fundamental spherical or cylindrical shapes of blown glass into eccentric and unforeseen new forms.”

–Art historian and critic Barbara Rose

Additional Insights

Spontaneous combinations of fire, breath, centrifugal force, and gravity are key components in the creation of Chihuly’s charismatic Persian series. With its free-spirited essence and asymmetry, the Persian series is a visual presentation of the glassblowing process—an intuitive yet technical execution—like a frozen fluid thought.
