Tuscan Red Seaform

2018 Chihuly Workshop Studio Edition

Tuscan Red Seaform

6 x 7½ x 7½"

It was a seemingly natural progression for Dale Chihuly’s Basket series to evolve into a more abstract series titled Seaforms. The transition was not intentional, but merely a continuation of Chihuly’s exploratory and curious nature.

The charged red palette of the 2018 Studio Edition Tuscan Red Seaform transitions from deep burgundy to a burnished, fiery red-orange and revisits aesthetics found in Chihuly’s earlier Seaforms. Varying shades of red body wrap sweep across the surface of the form, which is then twisted and capped with a teal green lip wrap. The resulting effect creates an exquisite mosaic-like pattern that is emphasized by the artwork’s rippling form. The simple and complex are juxtaposed and defined in this rich, elemental Studio Edition.

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 a copy of Chihuly Seaforms, a compact book including a DVD and an essay by Davira S. Taragin describing the historical and aesthetic contexts of this series.

“The natural elements of fire, velocity, gravity, and centrifugal force were always there, always the same. The difference was that I worked in this abstract way and let the forces of nature have a bigger role in the ultimate shape.”
