While traditional glass-making is about symmetry, Dale Chihuly’s work shows a departure from the past. To create his sculptures, Chihuly allows molten glass to find its own shape organically using gravitational force. Irregularity and asymmetry are defining characteristics of his work. Over the years, he has produced a wide range of colors, textures, and patterns. A Dale Chihuly glass piece, titled Persian and Horn Chandelier, will be available in the upcoming Modern Design auction from Rago. Completed in 2006, the hand-blown glass chandelier displays vibrant shades of blue, yellow, and orange.
Another featured lot is Peter Voulkos’ untitled sculpture from 1957. “I am not a conceptual artist,” Voulkos said. “I can’t just sit there and think of an idea. Most of it comes out of my hands.” An American sculptor, Voulkos was well known for his large clay sculptures. He frequently experimented with the boundaries of sculpture and pottery. The handmade lot is gas-fired stoneware with oxide or slip glazes. Browse the entire collection and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
