Dale Chihuly Artist Website

Working with FuseIQ and the Chihuly Studio, I helped redesign the renowned glass artist’s website to serve both as a curated collection of his work, and an educational archive, which can be easily updated by the studio team.

 

The Artwork page provides an entry into Glass, Works on Paper, and Early Works.
