‘The Sun’ by Dale Chihuly at Bekerley Square, London

Dale Chihuly is an internationally renown artist who focuses his art creations in the hand blown glass technique. Such creations result in stunning large scale and complex sculptures and installations made of glass, where the artist constantly experiments with colour and natural forms. His work is considered to be between crafts, design and art, and travels between abstraction and representation. The magnificent work of Dale Chihuly is a very delicate reflection of colour through the transparency of glass.
