Dale Chihuly | Drawings

“For Chihuly, drawing has become very much a part of the glassblowing process. He often draws in the hotshop, a process that joins his drawing activity to the communal activity of the blow in progress. The energy from making drawings, as much as the specific images, flows into the glassmaking process and, in equal measure, flows from it back to the drawings—a circular process.”
