commented on The Arrest of a Chihuly Trafficker
Glassblowing, particularly on a large scale, requires a team of artists. A single individual can't make complex or large works in glass by themselves. A good analogy for Chihuly is that he's more like an architect or a conductor, and the gaffers (glassblowers) that he hires are his builders or his orchestra. The design, color, and aesthetic are what make it his artwork.
