"If you put a Macchia on the table and you walk into a room it really held its own in the room. I loved the idea that just a single piece of glass could be like a sculpture that would command that much energy and space and attention." -- Dale Chihuly, quoted from the "Artist's Statement" set forth under "Macchia" on the Chihuly web site.
