Since the 1960s, Dale Chihuly has been producing innovative forms in glass, teaching, and expanding the scale and scope of his work to include entire glass installations. He began the Seaforms series in the 1980s and continued through the 1990s, inspired by the movement and color of underwater creatures. Chihuly’s Seaforms delight the eye and mystify the brain with their simultaneous delicacy and power. The ribbed pieces shimmer and almost seem to move in the light.

Chihuly’s influence on the world of American craft has been remarkable and enduring. Founder of the glass department at the Rhode Island School of Design as well as the Pilchuck School of Glass in Washington State, he represents the best and most creative glassmaking of our time.
