Dale Chilhuly’s chandelier enhances the entranceway of Storer Hall, the music building at Kenyon College. Subtle aquamarine gradations throughout the ensemble of pale, curled glass strands create a dynamic and cohesive whole. The colors in the chandelier can be found elsewhere in Storer, tying the work closely to the space where it resides. Chihuly is known for large-scale glass works, as he combines traditional Venetian glassblowing techniques with contemporary aesthetics. His work helped launch the success of the postwar American studio glass movement and he is credited with establishing the Pacific Northwest as a destination for glass artists. In Gilded Silver and Aquamarine Chandelier, he carefully works with color and scale, balancing the depth of pigmentation with the physical spacing of sculptural elements.
