Artist Dale Chihuly revolutionized the technique of glassblowing, creating distinctive works that challenged art world assumptions about the limits of the material. Chihuly’s Rose Crystal Tower is a staggering 31-foot-tall sculpture crafted to look exactly like pink rock candy, that crystalline sweet you might recall from childhood. For this stunning piece, Chihuly has chosen to work with polyvitro, a plastic material of his own invention that perfectly resembles glassy crystals. The installation, a towering cluster of gorgeous rose gems, will stand in Union Square for a full year.
