Zinnia Macchia

2014 Chihuly Workshop Studio Edition

Zinnia Macchia

9 x 10½ x 10½"

Luminous and vibrant, the Zinnia Macchia embodies the striking color combinations of Chihuly’s Macchia series.

Small spots of glimmering green, red, yellow, and orange move across the vivid chartreuse surface. Contrasting these lush colors, the body wrap emphasizes the fluctuating movement of the sculpture’s supple form. A lemon yellow lip wrap outlines the edge of the piece, which bows dramatically to allow full view of the dazzling raspberry interior.

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 Chihuly Macchia, a compact hardcover book with a DVD and essay by Davira S. Taragin on the historical and aesthetic contexts of this series.

“I want people to be overwhelmed with light and color in some way that they’ve never experienced.”

Additional Insights

The captivating color combinations of Chihuly’s Macchia—exuberant and unexpected—achieve the artist’s vision of a visceral experience in color and light. With opaque and translucent hues layered one over the other, the works in this series appear to glow with an internal radiance.

Art historian Robert Hobbs’s description of Macchia communicates their brilliance: “Seen under bright light they look like nature caught on fire, nature in molten flux, nature in the process of being created.”
