G l a s s a r t i s t Dale Chihuly reinvented the s t u d i o - g l a s s movement with ambitious art installations in museums and gardens around the world. While his massive works are typically hung or placed overhead, his latest creations are found underfoot: Chihuly has collaborated with The Rug Company on a collection of five rug designs, each limited to 250 pieces. The collection translates the artist's genius with glass by layering silk motifs on wool backgrounds, creating the illusion of transparency and delicacy of glass. Each rug design is inspired by a glasswork series: Rosette is based on Chihuly's "Persian" series, with deep blue swirling rings; Harvest and Cylinder recall his 1975 series "Cylinders" and are a pared-back neutral design. Poplar and Pheasant reference the "Macchia" series, with shimmering silk forms and shell- like motifs.
