Dale Chihuly's largest installation to date comes to life in this book which showcases the qualities his work is most known for: grandness of scale, vividness of colour, and scope of imagination. This gorgeous volume features 65 pages of full-colour photographic documentation of the commissioned sculpture, 'Fiori di Como' at the Bellagio resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. The more than 40,000 pound glass artwork hangs overhead in the hotel's main lobby from an intricate armature of metal 'branches'. The book displays in vivid detail the colourful garden of glass and its 2,000 pieces as well as reproductions of working faxes and fax drawings from Chihuly to Steve Wynn during the conceptual development of the project. The highly sculptural style of the piece and the broad range of colours make it a departure from anything Chihuly has done before. As Chihuly himself has said, "Everything about the 'Fiori di Como' was new -- the scale, the armature, and the glass.". This beautiful clothbound book provides image after image of the creative process and the final result of this monumental sculpture.
