Essay by Barbara Rose

Dale Chihuly's black works combine the dominant use of black intensified with the dynamic use of color throughout each blown sculpture. Dramatic contrast forces the eye directly to the form and, secondly, to the exuded colors. Burned Drawings, an essay by Dale Chihuly, introduces his series of drawings that radiate a potent energy. Experimental processes such as torching, using metal shavings, iridescents and metallics soon became the primary elements for these drawings. Filled with brilliant images, this book is an awe-inspiring collection of 12 fascinating series.
