New Display: Behind-the-Scenes: Chihuly and His Artisans

Behind-the-Scenes: Chihuly and His Artisans

Dale Chihuly would not be able to create the breathtaking and enormous installations that he is known for if not for the help of his amazing team of artisans. Some of his sculptures require 100 people or more to assemble. This display focuses on the process behind-the-scenes of how Chihuly and his team of artisans construct their ideas into massive installations of glass sculptures. Due to the weight of many of his sculptures, the workers need to create a steel frame to hold the glass. They face many challenges such as, holding up about 40,000 pounds of glass or trying to craft art by using electricity and ice.
