Glass Forest .. [2 / 2]

Installation at the Chihully Garden and Glass, Seattle, WA.

Caption:

Chihuly installations are distinctive achievements in scale, composition, and form. Glass Forest, made at the Rhode Island School of Design where Chihuly was an instructor, is an early example of his commitment to exploration of media and team collaboration. James Carpenter, an illustration major specializing in botanical drawings, approached Chihuly in 1971 to experiment with blowing botanical forms inspired by the Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants at Harvard University. Glass Forest came out of that collaboration and explored the common ground between natural forms and the organic appearance of blown glass.
The Glass Forest elements are created by simultaneously blowing and pouring molten glass from the top of a stepladder to the floor, where the deflated bubble solidifies. The glass stalks or stems are arranged in an enclosed space and illuminated with electrically charged neon and argon. With their globular collapsed bases and gracefully ascending stalks, they appear to be shaped by, and yet defy, the forces of gravity.
