A Letter from the President of the Board, Larry Winn

Dear Art Lovers and Collectors, Friends and Supporters of Transplant House,

Beginning with our first annual Transplant House fundraiser, Chihuly Studio has been a major sponsor. This year, Transplant House is grateful to say that Chihuly Studio will once again be a primary sponsor for our 2016 fundraiser.

The 2016 Transplant House charity event will be held October 7th at the Grand Image showroom and Studio. As part of this event we will hold a drawing for a stunning hand-blown Studio Edition donated by the Chihuly Studio and Workshop. This year’s piece, Fiesta Macchia, is from the famous Chihuly’s Macchia series.  Buy your tickets now as only 500 are available for sale. And remember, you do not need to be available to win!

100% of the proceeds raised from this drawing will go to support Transplant House’s mission of providing a home away from home for people who must uproot their lives and move to Seattle to await or recover from a life-saving transplant.

Thank you for your support.
Larry Winn
President - Transplant House Board
CEO - Grand Image

 




Fiesta Macchia

"It was the color we were concerned with: often bright, strange, mostly opaque, where the outside was dramatically contrasted with the inside," recalls the artist Dale Chihuly. The Macchia series provides Chihuly's intuitive eye for color with a continually endless palette from which to create and experiment. Works in this series have been described as "daring," "textured," and "vibrant." In the words of former curator Henry Geldzahler, "You see color as you've never seen it before, as if color itself were floating in the air. It is an elevating experience."

With an unrestricted palette, the 2011 Chihuly Workshop Studio Edition Fiesta Macchia articulates this masterful use of color throughout. From the bonfire of amber sparks that pepper a simmering adobe red to its interior patina of burnished orange, Fiesta Macchia expresses the series' distinctive use of revelatory color. The flowing ripples of the Macchia are delineated by the chartreuse lip wrap extending onto the body and accentuating the dimensional texture of the piece.

This handblown piece measure approximately ten inches in height and is signed by the artist.

A cache of prolific color, the Fiestra Macchia will add a dramatic presence to any fine art collection.
