World renowned artist, Dale Chihuly has developed many techniques during three decades as one of the most successful glassworkers in the world – primary among them is the role of teamwork in artistic creation. Chihuly has always referred to himself as a director of sorts, leading a team of artists through his visions and creative process, always aware of the importance of teamwork and the collaborative processes involved – no single person could blow some of the mammoth sculptures that Chihuly envisions, without the support of a team.This stunningly illustrated volume presents readers with a unique inside look at the complex relationship between these artisans, which is a masterpiece in itself, including the Italian glassmasters Lino Tagliapietra and Pino Signoretto, and Dale Chihuly himself.
