Year 7-Dale Chihuly

He draws inspiration from the world around him, creating statements using colour and form to capture the imagination, and catapult beyond conventional ideas of function and beauty. Chihuly’s methods for creating his artwork is an organic form where the glass can find it’s own shape and symmetry.
