The first children’s book about Dale Chihuly, the world-renowned glass sculptor.


His crew calls him Maestro. Thousands of fans call him a magician. Over the past five decades, Dale Chihuly has created some of the most innovative and popular works of art in museums and gardens around the world.

Authors Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan met with Chihuly in his studio for exclusive interviews discussing his early life, his passion for glassblowing, and his dazzling works. Lavishly illustrated with Chihuly’s art and family photographs, this book discusses Chihuly’s workshop and his glassblowing technique.

The book includes a step-by-step look at how blown glass is created, a list of places to see Chihuly’s artwork, endnotes, a bibliography, and an index.
