Master of Glass

Seaforms, Dale Chihuly

In December as a gift from my husband for Christmas, he took me to see an exhibition of prolific glass artist’s work, Dale Chihuly. This five room exhibit in Nashville’s Frist Center housed Chihuly’s Jackson Pollock like paint sketches, a short film showcasing his glass blowing process and many of his brilliant, organic, glass forms.

One form that I particularly fell in love with was his seaform. These delicate glass pieces captured the essence of aquatic life. Their see-through quality, vibrant color, flawless striations, and wavy form created a movement, light and life to these sculptures.

The exhibit overall was professionally executed, each piece was perfectly lit and considerately arranged. My only complaint would be that I would have liked to have seen more of his work.

If you ever get the opportunity to see Chihuly’s work, I would highly recommend seeing it! His combinations of color and form are really quite spectacular.
