Dale Chihuly's largest permanent installation to date comes to life in Chihuly Bellagio, featuring the commissioned sculpture Fiori di Como at the Bellagio resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. This unique project--Chihuly's interpretation of a garden of flowers--required more than 40,000 pounds of glass and a myriad of metal installation structures created specifically for the site. The sculpture flows across the ceiling of the hotel's main lobby. Chihuly reflects on the work: "Everything about the Fiori di Como was new--the scale, the armature, and the glass. First I had to develop the way the ceiling would look--the depth, new glass forms, the technique for holding the glass, all the safety issues involved." This clothbound book provides sixty-five detailed images of the creative process.
