BUILDING UP

Whidbey Island artist Dale Reiger, has traveled the world and worked in many different fields and materials, but is kiln fused glass pieces are what he is known for today. Glass had the right combination of hands on technique, artistic design, form and vision.  That, and the pure allure of glass as a material, captivated him.

 Most of Dale’s cast glass is multi-layered, and kiln fired, up to four times and sometimes spending two weeks in the kiln.  Adding multiple layers gives the glass more depth and mystique.  Some of his work is up to 2″ thick.  His multi colored glass houses and other sculptural structures, are thick cast plates of glass over a steel superstructure.  These sculptures, some over 7 feet tall, are for indoor or outdoor use.  

Dale describes his style as both primitive and elegant. He uses elementary shapes which translate into symbols.   These symbols help to create a highly personalized iconography drawing on Dale’s artistic, spiritual, and international background.  Dale uses color, including iridized and dichromatic glass, as a language. 

All of his sculptures can be lit from inside, creating stunning evening visuals. This sculpture is available for purchase.
