Excellent condition overall, please request a condition report for full details Includes Gallery Certificate of Authenticity Known as one of the most prolific artistic series ever conceived by Dale Chihuly, Macchia continues to grow in popularity among collectors. Created in 1981 as a result of the artists wish to use all 300 glass colors from his hot shop, this vibrant series evolved into a one-of-a-kind celebration of color and light. With a name meaning spot in Italian, it inspired Chihuly to invent not only novel ways to explore colored glass, but also to employ new techniques to allow each molten glass nuance to shine. As an extension of human breath according, glass-blowing is a way of creating that comes naturally to Chihuly.
Gaining shape by breath, the Macchia glass would also receive an abundance of coloristic effects and contrasts from glass shards that would melt over the vessel during the creation process. Speckles, translucency and surprising contrasts of the inner and outer shell of the series vessels set it apart as a long-lasting experiment in invention and demonstration of true mastery in glass art. A marvel of fiery nuances, Fiesta Maccha seduces with its endless palette and soft undulating shapes. Springled with amber yellows and deep maroons, this piece presents an outstanding play in translucency and shadows, as different shades of red flow over one another, allowing the brightest orange inside to glow through. Defined by a bright lime lip wrap and finest lines across the outer shell, Fiesta Macchia is an excellent piece of the series most iconic features, bringing forth the spirit of celebration, happiness and warmth.
An eruption of conviviality and seduction in glass, Fiesta Macchia makes a dramatic statement adding to any fine art collection. It measures about eleven inches in height and is signed by Chihuly on the side. The piece comes in professional, safe packaging.Be a clever collector - build your collection by investing smart.

About Dale Chihuly One of the most famous contemporary glass artists in the world, Dale Chihuly is best known for his monumental sculptures and installations. He is the name behind the spectacular ceiling at the Bellagios flower garden in Las Vegas and the creator of the Rotunda Chandelier at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Glasswork of Dale Chihuly is considered one of the most desired collectibles between the decorative arts devotees today. Despite his initial indifference towards education, Chihuly has spent a lot of time in school, obtaining both scientific and artistic degrees in sculpture from prestigious graduate schools.
He displayed a proclivity for interior design and craft early on, but his true passion was always in the glass. He was a Fulbright Fellow in the late 1960s and an apprentice at the Venini Glass Factory in Venice. Mastering the art of Murano glasswork, he continued the experiments with glassblowing and thus became one of the people who brought the ancient art of glassblowing back into the spotlight on an international scale. Monumental and small-scale artwork of Dale Chihuly is present in over 200 most renowned decorative art collections today, while the artist holds twelve honorary doctorates!
The most illustrious series in his work are Cylinders and Baskets he created in the 1970s; Macchia, Venetians and Persians from the 1980s, Niijima Floats and Chandeliers created in the 1990s; and a more recent one, Fiori from the 2000s. For over 30 years, Dale Chihuly has been acting as an artistic director of his team of craftsmen, since he was incapacitated in two accidents, which left him blind in one eye and incapable of holding the blowing tube.
This change allowed him to see the possibilities of glasswork on a much broader scale, while still maintaining his recognizable style. World's Most Demanded Contemporary Artists.
