About the Artist.
The work of glass artist Kathleen Eggert is inspired by the costume, rituals, dance and stories of traditional cultures. A self-taught artist, she has developed her own techniques for firing enamels on glass for more than 20 years. Her work has been widely exhibited internationally and is included in the collection of the Corning Museum of glass.

About the Work
The sculptures are sandblast carved from half-inch or thicker plate glass panels, and layers of powdered enamels are applied in multiple firings to achieve luminous color of great depth. Individual pieces also may include fired gold or applied metal leaf and sandblast etching. Faceless and spirit-like, the figures often evoke feelings of spirituality or mysticism. Fabricated masks of sterling silver can be removed and worn, allowing the objects to be "shared" with the figure.
