Mojave Macchia

2023 Chihuly Studio Edition

Mojave Macchia

9 x 10½ x 10½"

Dale Chihuly’s Macchia series is a platform to experiment with the endless variations and capabilities of color in the medium of glass, transforming a static experience into a visceral encounter with color and light.

The 2023 Mojave Macchia Studio Edition is a classic example of the driving force behind Chihuly’s original vision for the Macchia: “unbelievable combinations of color.” A constellation of multicolored speckles emblazes the rich violet exterior of the sculpture, while an oxblood red body wrap provides faint yet profound contrast and depth. Glass and color, stretched thin by heat, breath, and centrifugal force, create glimmers of illumination from the brilliant marigold interior, and the form’s organic undulations are defined by the moss green lip wrap.

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 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.”
