Maya Blue Persian

2014 Chihuly Workshop Studio Edition

Maya Blue Persian

7½ x 11½ x 10½"

With its captivating colors, the Maya Blue Persian exemplifies the skill and technical aspects that characterize Chihuly’s Persian series.

This two-piece composition, interpreted in deep, sumptuous blues and vivid orange, immediately captures the eye. The molded ribs create an eloquent scalloping effect emphasizing the fluent movement of the sculpture, its edges gilded with a flame-orange lip wrap. Inside the piece a small, striped element echoes the striking color palette of the work.

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 hardcover book Chihuly Persians with images that capture these imaginative forms, and an essay by former museum curator Tina Oldknow that gives historical context to the artist’s Persian series.

Additional Insights

From a technical standpoint, Chihuly explains the Persian series as a “tour de force.”

Symmetrical in the initial phase of the blowing process, the glass is slowly pushed to the limits of its stability. With the glass heated until it is ready to collapse, its symmetry disappears, and it reaches a point of fine delicacy where gravity takes over in the creation of the final form. The result is a dramatic, fluid sculpture rich with color.
