Artist Statement

“The simplicity of the triangle, circle, square and line combine in infinite variation on the transparent glass plane to create a third dimension. I take this concept a step further by turning the horizontal plane into a three dimensional object in combination with other materials.”

By sandblast etching and painting on half-inch or thicker plate glass panels, mounted in elegant iron frameworks or fabricated bases, Dale Eggert creates distinctive contemporary sculptures .
