Dale Chihuly: The Venetians

The George R. Stroemple Collection

A Stroemple/Stirek Collaboration


72 Dale Chihuly works from the Venetians on view

In the Venetians, Dale Chihuly achieves the most resplendently baroque work in his remarkable glass oeuvre, with blazing color, coiled tendrils, overblown flora and impish putti.  In 1988, twenty years after Chihuly was a Fulbright Fellow at the Venini glass factory, he returned. Intrigued by the astonishing and wildly inventive pieces from the 1920s and 1930s, he decided to create his own versions.

 The Venetians on view include the Putti Venetians, 15 capacious multi-colored vessels, each with hot-formed figurative sculptures of putti and mythological creatures in the design; 42 Piccolo Venetians, smaller but no less spirited vessels based on traditional Venetian themes; the Bottlestoppers, 3 monumental vessels inspired by perfume bottles, surmounted by hot-formed sculptures made by Pino Signoretto; plus 12 of Chihuly’s preliminary drawings.  The George R. Stroemple Collection is internationally recognized as one of the most significant collections of artwork documenting the studio glass movement in the Pacific Northwest.
