The Preeminent, Renowned, American Glassmaster. Chihuly's works are represented in over 170 museums around the world including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Louvre in Paris. Chihuly is considered the "Tiffany of contemporary glass", according to Bill Wormus, former curator of the Corning Museum of Glass. Cynthia Goodman, chief curator at the Cincinnati Contemporary Art Center, said "Chihuly¹ took glass from craft to art". The University of North Carolina has named him "America's First National Living Treasure". You can now share the museum experience and own a piece of that treasure.
The Studio Edition Glass program began in 1994 when Portland Press released its first glass edition. Each year Dale Chihuly interprets one or more of his series and offers this collectible glass through museums and galleries across the country. Its undeniable success after the first few years prompted us to continue to expand the collection and number of locations where it is available. You can now find Studio Edition glass in more than 100 locations nationwide and online here at Portland Press.
