2018 Tuscan Red Seaform Studio Edition by Dale Chihuly
Tuscan Red Seaform Studio Edition

“The natural elements of fire, velocity, gravity, and centrifugal force were always there, always the same. The difference was that I worked in this abstract way and let the forces of nature have a bigger role in the ultimate shape.” —Dale Chihuly

It was a seemingly natural progression for Dale Chihuly’s Basket series to evolve into a more abstract series titled Seaforms. The transition was not intentional, but merely a continuation of Chihuly’s exploratory and curious nature.

The charged red palette of the 2018 Studio Edition Tuscan Red Seaform transitions from deep burgundy to a burnished, fiery red-orange and revisits aesthetics found in Chihuly’s earlier Seaforms. Varying shades of red body wrap sweep across the surface of the form, which is then twisted and capped with a teal green lip wrap. The resulting effect creates an exquisite mosaic-like pattern that is emphasized by the artwork’s rippling form. The simple and complex are juxtaposed and defined in this rich, elemental Studio Edition.
