Description
Dale Chihuly's obsession with color and his insatiable desire to experiment inspired his Macchia (Italian for spot or stain) series. 'Chihuly alla Macchia' traces its development from the first small, oddly shaped, grotesquely coloured vessels, dubbed the 'uglies' by Chihuly's forthright mother when they began in 1981, to the recent flamboyant and exuberantly hued Macchia. This book reproduces in full-colour the 39 glass works and 15 drawings included in the 1993 exhibition of the George R Stroemple collection. The book is not, however, merely an exhibition catalogue. Through the extensive use of close-up details, it offers the reader a chance to experience the glasswork in an intimate manner. The book also includes the essay, 'Reflections on Macchia', by Robert Hobbs, as well as an exhibition checklist and a chronology.
