Aug. 20, 2013 – Movie Chihuly River of Glass
This meeting will be broken up into two parts. First we will meet in the West Wing between 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. to have our usual social, show and tell, and to talk about any new business. Then at 7:15 we will cleanup, and head to the Sanctuary to watch the movie – Chihuly River of Glass.
Part of a video series which investigates the sculptor Dale Chihuly’s specific modes of working, Chihuly: River of Glass documents the wide range of glass sculpture that embodies Chihuly’s “Chihuly Over Venice” project. The video transports viewers to Nuutajarvi, Finland, for a glass-blowing session; to Waterford, Ireland, for the creation of green spears; to Mexico, where Chihuly makes iridescent blossoms bloom; and then to Venice for a feast of faceted crystal. Interviews with Chihuly and his team shed light on the glass master’s creative process, which involves drawing, designing, and careful communication.
