Nighttime Magic at the Garden

Night time Magic at the Garden

“Persian Pond and Fiori” by Dale Chihuly at the New York Botanical Garden. The brightly colored forms of Persians resemble whimsical water lily leaves floating on the surface of the water. Individual pieces ranging from 19 to 36 inches in diameter are massed together to make a striking installation evocative of Chihuly’s vision of a fantasy garden. Persians were developed using a technique Chihuly had learned at the centuries-old Venini workshop in Venice, in which a special mold, or “wrap,” is used to create an undulating pattern on the surface of the glass. Over time, these forms have been displayed individually and in groups in gallery and garden settings, and even massed together in arrangements on walls and high overhead, continually subverting the expectations of the viewer.
