Through the time-honored process of glassblowing, using few tools and relying on the forces of nature and human breath, Dale Chihuly achieved his vision to re imagine the aging and slumping Native American baskets he so admired. The 2018 Studio Edition Ivory Luster Basket, a strong statement in its simplicity, embodies the ephemeral, amorphous, and free-form attributes for which Chihuly's forty year old Basket series is known.
A thin veil of glass, stretched taut around the breath that initiated it, creates a spacious interior in which rest two smaller Basket elements, each varying in degrees of translucency and opacity. An oxblood wrap, beginning at the lip of each of the three forms, continues in a graceful, arcing extension that accentuates the dimensional presence of the entire composition.
