Chihuly Glass Art

Books about art sell well in art auctions. I have found many publications that feature my favorite artist, Dale Chihuly. There are books, catalogs and even magazines routinely up for auction.

Chihuly Gardens and Glass is currently for sale in several art auctions. This book is beautifully illustrated and shows installations at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago. The book has an essay by Barbara Rose addressing Dale Chihuly’s place in art history. There is another essay by the Garfield Conservatory director that provides a history of garden conservatories

Chihuly at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew features more than one hundred photographs that captured this event. An art auction for this book sold for fifty dollars. The exhibit at the Royal Botanical Gardens was Dale Chihuly’s first botanical garden exhibition outside of the United States.

Chihuly Seaforms has an excellent value at an art auction. It depicts forty four color photographs of his most ethereal series to date. The pieces he created for this series have been called not only “reflections of skill, passion, teamwork and sheer genius” but also “tributes” to the sea. He is truly a master.

Chihuly Form Fire was published in 1993 and it only occasionally shows up in art auctions. The book is hardcover and 144 pages long with over 75 color reproductions of his splendid work. There is a very informative commentary in the book about Chihuly’s career.

Chihuly has been exhibited all over the world and the accompanying catalogs sell for a lot at an art auction. The catalogs have a value to people that cannot possibly afford to ever own an actual piece of his art. I bought a catalog at an art auction that depicted his installations from the years 1964-1992. I have spent a lot of time looking at the photographs and have determined that Chihuly is pure genius.

I really want to find a copy of Chihuly Jerusalem 2000 at an art auction. The book sells new for fifty dollars. I think that the story of this journey and exhibit is extraordinary and I want to own a copy of this book. This book contains 117 full-color reproductions and from what I’ve seen they are all extraordinary.

I was surprised that even the book of Chihuly’s drawings has tremendous resale value at an art auction. He is able to convey such beauty and energy with his work and these drawings actually do the same thing. These drawings are what his ideas start out as before they are fully realized in glass.

There is one inexpensive Chihuly book that I rarely seen in art auctions. It only contains 17 color reproductions. It does cover the installations that had 20,000 pounds of ice. These were called the neon-and-ice installations and they had a powerful effect on the people that viewed them. This book is soft cover and it is better to buy it new from a website than from a previous owner at an art auction.

I’ve lost countless art auctions for the book that contains photos of his exhibit at the Marlborough Gallery in New York City. I just never bid enough. At some point, I will probably just have to bid more to win it from an art auction. I know that the 51 images are dramatic, but the book is a soft cover and I just don’t think I should pay $25 for it.

My mother won a Chihuly book for me at an art auction last year. It chronicled the installation in Japan at the Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art in 1990. I loved each and every one of the 54 images contained in this book. I have been asked several times to loan it to friends, but I have refused. This is one book that I refuse to lose.

In 1986, Chihuly was only the fourth American to get a solo exhibition at the Louvre in Paris. There was a soft cover book published with 33 photos in it that chronicles the exhibit. Also in the book is an introduction written by the chief curator and director of the Centre du Verre. This is the next book I hope to own and I’ve been watching art auctions hoping to see it pop up.

About Rich Small Glass artist Rich Small began writing stories at a young age, but has always been interested in other forms of expression. He was first drawn to glass as an artistic medium upon seeing an exhibit of Dale Chihuly chandeliers at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC. The exhibit took up the entire upper story of the gallery, and spilled, as Chihuly and rsquo;s works will, down onto the first floor. He walked in through the front doors, and saw the bottom, the very tip, of a chandelier hanging down in the center of the room. As he walked into the room the chandelier appeared, an upside-down iceberg of multicolored flowers and spires. He had been fascinated by glass since he was a child. But at the Chihuly exhibit, he saw glass in a completely new way. After much exploration, he went to a local glass art show, and was invited to drop by the studio. and ldquo;To watch, and rdquo; they said. He didn and rsquo;t just watch. He was a moth to the furnace flame. Rich likes to create objects that have stories to tell. Objects that draw you into them, begging questions, yielding few answers. His glass objects have unexpected textures, both tactile and visual. Often the objects incorporate metal in unexpected ways; a metal leaf seeming to blow through a snowstorm on the surface of a pumpkin, a heart crusted with still-molten metal, what appears to be copper cladding on an ancient urn. All of these objects have stories to tell. You just have to ask. See Rich in action making these beautiful works of art.

Studio Glass In America


Studio Glass In America


$49.95


A 50 Year Journey Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Studio Glass movement in America, this vibrantly photographed book is both a valuable reference book and a lush picture book that any art lover must own. Presented as a gallery exhibit, you and 39;ll learn about the history of the studio glass movement, then browse works and words of 50 amazing artists that have shaped our understanding of glass art. The American studio glass movement can be traced to 1962, when Harvey Littleton, a professor of ceramics at the University of Wisconsin, had a dream to alter molten glass into unique forms in a studio setting and teach his techniques. For the first time in its 3,500-year history, glass production, that had been limited to factory settings, moved to the artists and 39; studios and became a part of an academic program in the fine arts. Since then, glass has become the fastest growing studio art medium throughout the world. This book takes us from the first workshop in a Toledo, Ohio garage, to reveal decade by decade the unprecedented growth of studio glass. Through high-quality, detailed images and stories, this retrospective of 50 top artists is a collector and 39;s dream. Noted art dealer Ferdinand Hampson offers a unique perspective on this exciting evolution.
