Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová, The Red Head, 1957, cast glass,
14 ¼ x 7 ¼ x 3 ¼ inches; Collection of Pilchuck Glass School
Pilchuck: IDEAS includes pieces by Dale Chihuly, William Morris, Joey Kirkpatrick, Flora Mace, Ben Moore, Lino Tagliapietra, Italo Scanga and more. The works on display are especially significant because they show these artists in the process of teaching, experimenting and in some cases searching for iconic forms and expressions for which they have become famous. Groupings of early glass are shown next to mature examples of the artists work from private collections. This dynamic juxtaposition will showcase the important role that Pilchuck Glass School has played as a fiery art incubator and crucible for Ideas.
Pilchuck IDEAS received funding from Skagit County.
