Chihuly at the V&A
Written by Dale Chihuly
Edited by Jennifer Hawkins Opie

A great book about many of the works of Dale Chihuly, especially his exhibit at the London V&A. Well written and full of colorful photographs, it is an extraordinary journey along the path that is the life of Chihuly. There are several pages of his preliminary installation sketches and notes, as well as multiple viewings of his painted creations, from which his final glass-blowing is derived.

The text within this book will answer the many questions you probably have about Chihuly - whether they are regarding his initial introduction to glass-blowing, what caused the loss of one eye (thus resulting in his separation from actually, physically, working with the glass-blowing), or simply what provides the inspiration and feeds the style that is so distinctly, Chihuly.
