Dale Chihuly is an American glass sculptor and businessman with a net worth of $10 million. Chihuly gained his net worth by creating award-winning sculptures over a 40 year period. 'Cylinders and Baskets', 'Seaforms, Macchia, Venetians and Persians', 'Niijima Floats' 'Chandeliers' and 'Fiori' are just the few of the artwork that put Chihuly's name on the map. To date, his work is shown in over 200,000 renowned museums worldwide. Museums included Palais De Louvre in Paris, Victoria and Albert museum in London and Tower of David museum, where over a million visitors attended to view his work. In addition to this Chihuly's work was exhibited at Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew. The Washington-born artist was first introduced to glass sculpture whilst studying interior design at University of Washington. He further quenched his interest in the subject by working in a glass factory in Venice in the late sixties, where he learned the fine art of glass blowing. By the early seventies, Chihuly co-founded Pilchuck Glass School in Washington and through this glass center, he quickly became the pioneer of developing glass as a fine art. As a pioneer in glass sculpturing, Chihuly received several awards, including eleven honorary doctorates and two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Dale Chihuly (born September 20, 1941, Tacoma, Washington), is an American glass sculptor and entrepreneur.
Chihuly was born in Tacoma, Washington, where he graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School. He enrolled at the College of the Puget Sound in 1959. A year later, he transferred to the University of Washington in Seattle, where in 1965 he received a bachelor of arts degree in interior design.
In 1967, he received a Master of Science in sculpture from the University of Wisconsina??Madison, where he studied under Harvey Littleton. In 1968, he studied glass in Venice on a Fulbright Fellowship and received a Master of Fine Arts at the Rhode Island School of Design. In 1971, with the support of John Hauberg and Anne Gould Hauberg, Chihuly founded the Pilchuck Glass School near Stanwood, Washington. In 1976, while Chihuly was in England, he was involved in a head-on car accident during which he flew through the windshield. His face was severely cut by glass and he was blinded in his left eye. After recovering, he continued to blow glass until he dislocated his right shoulder in a 1979 bodysurfing accident. No longer able to hold the glass blowing pipe, he hired others to do the work. Chihuly explained the change in a 2006 interview, saying "Once I stepped back, I liked the view" and pointing out that it allowed him to see the work from more perspectives and enabled him to anticipate problems faster. Chihuly describes his role as "more choreographer than dancer, more supervisor than participant, more director than actor." San Diego Union-Tribune reporter Erin Glass wrote that she "wonders at the vision of not just the artist Chihuly, but the wildly successful entrepreneur Chihuly, whose estimated sales by 2004 was reported by The Seattle Times as $29 million." Chihuly and his team of artists were the subjects of the documentary Chihuly Over Venice. They were also featured in the documentary Chihuly in the Hotshop, syndicated to public television stations by Ameri
