Blown glass

Gift of Suzanne and Walter Scott

Located on Level Four in the Chihuly Sanctuary, Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center.

Glass on Glass, the latest body of work by Chihuly, fluently articulates the artist’s mastery of the transmission of light through transparent media. Composed of glass panels that are painted with vitreous-glass enamel, then layered atop one another to create a single unified vision, Glass on Glass invites interaction, revealing the surface of each distinct layer and the composition’s depth as the viewer changes position.
