What is Fiori di Como
Fiori di Como installed in 1998 at Bellagio Resort, Las Vegas. The great art work by Dale Chihuly, an American glass sculptor. His installations and art works are created by manual blown glass. Fiori Di Como is a ceiling sculpture of 2,000 hand-blown glass blossoms by Dale Chihuly that hangs in the Resort’s lobby! It covers about 2000 square feet of ceiling. We can imagine the volume of the work and number of people involved in making such a beautiful installation. Actual installation can experienced in a VDO on Fiori di Como on You tube.
Chihuly’s other artworks and installations can be found at his website and in a VDO there. We can visit the Chihuly Workshop, a place for experimentation, studio editions and publishing his artworks. Get some art and designs inspiration from Chihuly.
