Riassunto: Twenty-six years ago, Chihuly attended an exhibition of Navajo blankets and was completely captivated. The brilliant colours, bold geometric designs, and intricate weaving of the textiles appealed to his interest in the interplay of strong colours and shapes. Chihuly later studied the designs, patterns, colours, and origins of trade blankets, recognising their significance in history and the differences between their machine-made origin and that of the handmade blankets. Soon after, Chihuly began to create a series of glass cylinders that explore the blankets' beauty -- a pursuit he continued to perfect for twenty years -- while acquiring more than six hundred trade blankets in his private collection. That artistic enterprise has culminated in this outstanding volume, its images honouring the history of an extraordinary culture and presenting the artist's accomplished interpretations of it. The book features historical photographs, selections from Chihuly's own trade blanket collection, and the distinguished 'Blanket Cylinders' series.
