Rose Blush Macchia

2017 Chihuly Workshop Studio Edition

Rose Blush Macchia

6 x 9 x 9"

Earthy and surreal, Rose Blush Macchia illustrates Chihuly’s mastery of color. It’s a stunning example of the Macchia series, inspired by Chihuly’s desire to use all 300 colors in the hotshop.

The sculpture’s vitality emerges from brilliant, variegated spots of orange and red pigments. These pigments, stretched and transformed in the process by breath, heat, and gravity, are illuminated against shadowy bands of rose and violet hues. A radiant yellow lip wrap emphasizes the classic rippling form of the Macchia series and bridges the colloquy between the exterior color and the soft blue interior.

Additional Insights

Exploring every conceivable color combination for the Macchia series, Chihuly created color charts noting one color for the interior and another for the exterior. Chihuly tackled the challenge of keeping these colors pure and separate, leading to his providential discover of a new technique—introducing a layer of white between the interior and exterior, to keep colors from blending.
