Chihuly at Biltmore – Burnished Amber, Citron, and Teal Chandelier

Chihuly’s first concept form for his Chandeliers premiered at the 1992 Seattle Art Museum exhibition. The series, which reflects the artist’s longtime interest in architecture, was further explored and perfected during preparation for Chihuly Over Venice, an ambitious two-year project.

Chandeliers can be made from as many as 1,000 individual pieces of glass. The elements that comprise Chandeliers can be bulbous, long and twisted, short and spiraled, and even frog-footed. Carefully arranged and attached to a
specially-designed steel armature, the many forms combine to create an intricate suspended composition.

Here is the Burnished Amber, Citron, and Teal Chandelier at Biltmore made in 2017.
