Lavishly illustrated with Chihuly’s art and family photographs, World of Glass: The Art of Dale Chihuly discusses Chihuly’s workshop and his glassblowing technique.
Over the past five decades, Dale Chihuly has created some of the most

world. For World of Glass, Greenberg and Jordan met with Chihuly in his
studio for exclusive interviews discussing his early life, his passion for
glassblowing, and his dazzling works. The book includes a step-by-step
guide to how glass pieces are created, a list of places to see Chihuly’s
artwork, endnotes, a bibliography, and an index.
