Hat Trick

2012

HAT TRICK  is comprised of three kaleidoscopic crystalline structures that fracture and reflect the space between the West and East Towers of Centennial Place.

This wall sculputre is a massive 1,200-square-foot, three-paneled piece is made of dichroic glass, weighs 10,000 pounds and is made of 1,500 hand-made parts. (The dichroic glass was originally developed for NASA’s satellite mirrors).

It took three years for Calgary artist Christian Eckart to complete the project. The title pays homage to the fact that this is the artist’s third commissioned piece for a private client.
