Dale Chihuly is not bound by the limitations of any one medium. He is a natural innovator, continuously experimenting with different media and new ways to explore his ideas. Over the years, Dale’s unique methods have allowed him to create artwork in unexpected and unconventional ways. Drawing is second nature to Dale and it has long been core to his creative process. It is a spontaneous and dynamic way to express himself and communicate design ideas to others.
Chihuly's Drawings have become significant works of art in their own right. He incorporates graphite, charcoal, and watercolor and acrylic paints—even non-traditional materials like tea, coffee and wine—
"Drawing is a fluid process, like glassblowing is a fluid process." –CHIHULY
