2007 Studio Edition Glass by Dale Chihuly

The Studio Edition Glass program began in 1994 when Portland Press released its first studio edition. Each year Dale Chihuly interprets one or more of his series and offers this collectible glass through museums and galleries across the country. Its undeniable success after the first few years prompted us to continue to expand the collection and number of locations where it is available. You can now find Studio Edition glass in more than 100 locations nationwide and online here at Portland Press.

Each Studio Edition is hand-blown by Chihuly's team to his specifications as to its shape and style. Due to the process involved in handblowing, each individual piece varies in color, size, and shape. Chihuly signs each Studio Edition and in the case of a set, generally signs only the smallest piece. The Studio Editions are not limited in number but are retired after several years.

Dale Chihuly Lithographs

Lithographs are created by Chihuly in different ways, including drawing with tusche (greasy ink) onto metal plates or painting on sheets of mylar (a polyester film). One plate is needed for each color desired in the final artwork. For example, a six-color lithograph requires that Chihuly make six different drawings on six different plates, After further preparation of the plates by the master printmaker, the plates are inked and pulled over high-quality archival paper, with one pass required for each plate used. Thus, a six-color lithograph is run through the press six separate times.
