Born in Tacoma, Dale Chihuly was introduced to glass while studying interior design at the University of Washington. He went on to study at the first glass program in the country at the University of Wisconsin with Harvey Littleton. In 1971, he co-founded Pilchuck Glass School that has led in the development of glass as a fine art. Chihuly has created many series of works, including the Baskets, Persians, and Seaforms as well as large architectural installations. This collection of blown glass objects is typical of his Seaform series.
