The Boathouse

The Artist's Studio of Dale Chihuly

This book features an exclusive glimpse into The Boathouse, the private working studio of artist Dale Chihuly, and into the history of its location on the shores of Lake Union in Seattle. Inhabited for thousands of years, this area in the Pacific Northwest has witnessed significant historical changes, innovations, and reinventions. Similarly, The Boathouse has been a place for Chihuly to experiment with and give birth to new projects and ideas, as it was for its previous owner, renowned boatbuilder George Pocock. Inside, the space is representative of Chihuly's design aesthetic, showcasing pieces from his iconic bodies of work as well as his personal collections of art and unique objects. It is also home to one of the largest hot shops in the world, where Chihuly and his team of glassblowers create works in glass for art installations and exhibitions at museums and gardens.
