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 in suspending a 40,000-pound artwork overhead. —Dale Chihuly
We invite you to explore Fiori di Como, a colorful garden of glass hanging overhead, created by Chihuly in 1998 specifically for the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Today, this is one of Chihuly's most well-known public sculptures. The revised edition includes all new photographs and an expanded format highlighting the 2,000-piece installation accompanied by a twenty-minute DVD.
