Re: Chihully's Blown Glass (Long)

Chihuly is one of my favorites too. The Detroit Institute of Arts had an
amazing show years ago. His work was so fascinating I went back six or seven
times to see the show taking different people with me each time. I recently
purchased a great 30 minute video "Chihuly working with Lino Tagliapietra"
available through Portland Press ( or 1-800 574-7272).
He spoke at the University of Michigan a while back and showed slides of the
work you were discussing. My son bought me a book "Chihuly: Form from Fire"
which I also recommend (Portland Press). This book has color photos of his
glass and some of his drawings as well. I love his drawings and his paint
splattered boots.~su
