Midnight Blue Piccolo
Venetian with Red Feather, 1999

Chihuly Workshop Studio Edition

In 1988, inspired by Italian Art Deco, Chihuly started the Venetians series with Italian glassblower Lino Tagliapietra. In 1993, the series developed further into smaller Venetians, the Piccolo Venetians. In 1999, Chihuly chose the Midnight Blue Piccolo Venetian with Red Feather as one of the Chihuly Workshop Studio Editions. In this piece, forms of nature and tradition combine perfectly. Approximately seventeen inches tall, the midnight blue cone with shimmering, gemlike overtones is gracefully wrapped by a red feather. This piece is hand blown and signed by the artist.
