ROLLIN KARG SMALL WILLOW SCULPTURE
Rollin Karg is a renowned glass artisan from the Midwest who designs and creates small to massive sculptural pieces from molten glass, usually shaped in a freeform, asymmetrical manner. He brings the glass to life through his dynamic use of color, especially dichroic colors– a color that transmits one color while reflecting another– which adds a unique dimension to the piece.
While Karg prefers to use traditional techniques of glassmaking that are thousands of years old, he also adds his own inventive techniques to each project. It is amazing and awe-inspiring to watch him create massive works of art through the use of a five-foot blowpipe.
Although Karg spent the first part of his career as an industrial engineer, photographer, potter and woodworker before becoming a full time glass artist in 1983, he has quickly gained notoriety for his contribution to the world of glass art. He has won many awards in competitions and shows throughout the United States and his work has been shown at galleries and exhibitions throughout most of North America.
This piece features a soaring, three-pronged, glossy pebbled iron stand with a circular base. The iron stand measures: 25.5" high, 9" wide and 9" deep.
The substantial glass disc is removable, so you can collect more of Karg's discs to mix and match. The disc is made of smoky glass, with a circular explosion of iridescent dichroic greens, yellows, oranges and indigos in a beautiful centered pattern. The removable glass disc measures 6.5" in diameter and 2.5" in depth.
