Periwinkle Persian

2019 Chihuly Studio Edition

Periwinkle Persian

6½ x 10 x 9"

Dale Chihuly discovered early in his career that through human breath, heat, and gravity, he was able to achieve forms in glass that had not previously existed. The Persian series' animated grace was realized through the exploration of this spontaneous and organic process.

Periwinkle Persian, a 2019 Studio Edition, is a provocative study of suspended motion. The elements in this two-piece composition illustrate the fluid gestures and the effects of gravity, both used to shape handblown glass. Its translucent violet exterior element with a pale lilac body wrap and contrasting blue lip wrap cradles a coiled and textured element that propels the energetic momentum of the entire sculpture.

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.

"The piece is always moving while it's in progress and one has to make decisions very quickly. I like the work to reflect these quick decisions, the end result being a frozen fluid thought—as direct as a drawing."
