Dale Chihuly was born in Washington, USA, in 1941.
He studied interior design, architecture and glass blowing at University.

Chihuly has a fascination with abstract nature.
He likes to reflect the ocean and its creatures in his work.

Chihuly uses nature for the setting of his pieces.
Sometimes he entwines his pieces around tree branches and trunks.
He also suspends them in space and floats them in water.

He lost sight in one eye after a car accident- and now wears an eye patch.
He employs a team to handle molten glass for him.
