Laguna Persian Studio Edition
“The compositions of the Persians look as if they occurred by happenstance, while the fragility of the glass lends itself a special poignancy to these pieces because they appear to have survived time and pillaging.”
—Robert Hobbs, “Dale Chihuly’s Persians: Acts of Survival,” in Chihuly Persians
Composed of two abstract and beguiling elements, the 2018 Studio Edition Laguna Persian communicates an ancient sensibility through a contemporary form. Bathed in lush emerald green, the artwork’s undulating waves are wound with a sinuous body wrap of golden amber, chartreuse, and oxblood red to reveal an internal candescence and inviting contrast. Spanish yellow lip wraps illuminate the scalloped edges of Laguna Persian, a Studio Edition that, through its back-to-back composition, conveys an intuitive exuberance for environment and form.
