We love Chihuly …amazing work..inspirational

Since 1975, Chihuly has used his Cylinders to create glass-thread drawings on vessels inspired by Native American textiles. Colorful threads are carefully laid out in an intricate design and fused onto the vessel when it is in its molten stage. This is known as the “pick-up drawing” technique. From the Irish Cylinders to the White Cylinders, Chihuly continues to experiment with this form.
