Measures 16 1/2" tall, 7" long & 6" wide at base, and 4" long & 2 1/2 wide at top. How does an industrial engineer come to be an accomplished artist?
Rollin Karg, engineer turned photographer turned potter turner woodworker turned glassblower, has turned one of his one-time hobbies into a very successful career. He attributes his artistic inclination in part to a strong desire to work with his hands, coupled with the tree/park like setting of his studio.Karg was born in Columbus, Ohio but was raised in Miami, Florida. Karg studied hot glass at Emporia State University. During this time he built his first glassblowing furnace. He originally came to Wichita to attend Wichita State University on a football scholarship but fell in love with the beauty and challenge of blown glass. In 1996, he had heart bypass surgery, but 2 weeks later he was back in his studio and 6 weeks later blowing glass again. This is especially impressive when you consider that most of the pieces Karg makes are heavy, solid form sculptural pieces which place considerable physical demands on the body.
It also demonstrates that he absolutely loves what he does. Most people in the industry recognize the strong value in his work. His pieces are priced well and are all one-of-a-kind.
