Dappled Silver Ikebana with Trio of Gilded Pink Stems

Ikebana is the Japanese art form of flower arranging. This ikebana-inspired work features three gilded pink flowers in a vase. Dale Chihuly is known for making sculptures out of glass; his series of ikebana sculptures is no exception. The artist has had a long-standing interest in Japan and an appreciation of Japanese culture. Organic forms, specifically floral forms, have long held a strong position within Chihuly’s repertoire. Often such elements are utilized in monumental compositions, yet there is a quiet and a focus in examples such as this.
