Fiori Glass Series by Dale Chihuly

Check out these beautifully designed glass art pieces by Dale Chihuly.  

Each piece is mastefully created and are awe inspiring to look at.  The Fiori Glass Series has an indoor and outdoor series.  Fiori would work beautifully as an accessory inside or a magical addition to any garden.  The pictures are just stunning and I would love to have a piece from this exquisite collection.

About The Artist

Born in 1941 in Tacoma, Washington, Dale Chihuly was introduced to glass while studying interior design at the University of Washington. After graduating in 1965, Chihuly enrolled in the first glass program in the country, at the University of Wisconsin. He continued his studies at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where he later established the glass program and taught for more than a decade.

In 1968, after receiving a Fulbright Fellowship, he went to work at the Venini glass factory in Venice. There he observed the team approach to blowing glass, which is critical to the way he works today. In 1971, Chihuly cofounded Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State. With this international glass center, Chihuly has led the avant-garde in the development of glass as a fine art.

His work is included in more than 200 hundred museum collections worldwide. He has been the recipient of many awards, including eleven honorary doctorates and two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts.
