Dale Chihuly is the artist behind these unique and colorful glass sculptures. He studied interior design at the University of Washington. It was then that he was introduced into glass making. After graduating in 1965, he enrolled at the University of Wisconsin in the first ever glass program in the country. He went to work in a glass factory in Venice after receiving his Fulbright Fellowship. It was there that he honed his glass-making skills. These days, he is one of the pioneers of avant-garde glass sculpture in the world. Bis pieces are spread out in over 200 museum collections worldwide.
