Glass craftsman master Dale Chihuly

Glass, perhaps - is one of the most amazing materials created by man.
       Dale Chihuly is the master of amazing glass.
Dale Patrick Chihuly is an American glass sculptor (born 1941 in Tacoma, Washington, USA). Chihuly finished high school in Tacoma. Supported by his mother, after the death of his brother George in an accident in Florida and the death of his father from a heart attack, he entered the Puget Sound College (now the University of Puget Sound) in 1959. A year later, he moved to the University of Washington in Seattle, where he studied the internal design, architecture and blowing glass.

Along with several other glass artists, and with the support of John and Anna Hoberg, Chihuli founded an influential Glass School in 1971 in Stenewood. Chikhuli lives and works in his studio. Having lost his eye in a car crash in 1976, Chichuli lost the perception of the depth necessary to handle casting himself. Instead, he comprehends every project with paint and canvas and then hires a team of artists to do the work. His masterpieces can also be seen in designer hotels in many cities around the world. One chandelier hangs in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

... each work of Chihuly is unique and exists in a single copy ...

The work of Chihuly is the story of his life. His fascination with the abstract nature of shapes comes from his mother's garden in the town of Tacoma, Washington State. His love for the ocean had a huge impact on his work. Over the past 40 years, the glass sculptures of Chikuli have been revealed in color, design and unusual construction. His work varies in size and color. Fame brought him multi-part blown out of glass masterpieces. His interest in the culture of Ireland led to a series of works "Irish Cylinders," which, in fact, are much more modest in the concept than the pretentious work of blown glass.
Some of the work of Chikuly covers the huge ceilings of casinos and hotels, while others are just abstract flowers the size of a palm tree. Chikuli uses intensely bright colors and linear ornaments to revitalize his work.

The work of Chihuly can be learned easily. He works in different styles.

 One of the main merits of the maestro is that he managed to overcome the technical limitations associated with the fragility of glass, and literally make a technological revolution.
