Persian Ceiling

Originally created in 2008, this Persian Ceiling was reconfigured in 2016 for the Chihuly Collection’s home on Central Avenue.

This installation celebrates the movement of light through translucent Persians, resulting in intentional washes of color across the walls. Nested among the Persians are various whimsical forms including cones, snooters, Seaforms, crab, nautilus, and a Putti perched on a clam shell. The multifaceted nature of this installation invites the viewer to linger.
