Conceptual artist Dale Chihuly has traditionally used "energy" as the central motif for his work, manifest both in his broadly-scaled museum installations and in the cutting-edge new forms that he has created. This documentary - a sequel to the prior Chihuly Short Cuts - explores Chihuly's creative process via ten short films that collectively showcase his achievements over one ten-year period. These add up to a multi-stranded biographical portrait of an artist whose life and work revolve around stretching the limitations of the medium and revitalizing concepts of what art can and cannot do. The shorts include; Playing with Fire, At the de Young, Making a Chandelier, The Bridge of Glass, Mercurio, {#All About Drawing], Tutti Putti, Chihuly at Kew, Black is Black and Chihuly at the Salk.
