About Rollin Karg.

Artisan Rollin Karg Makes Impact in the Glass Art and Sculpture World

Rollin Karg, engineer turned photographer, turned potter, turned woodworker, turned glassblower, turned his one-time hobbies into a fulltime career. He attributes his artistic inclination in part to a strong desire to work with his hands, coupled with the inspiring, park like location of the gallery in Kechi, Kansas.
Rollin studied hot glass at Emporia State University, commuting from Wichita while building his first furnace. He originally came to Wichita, KS to attend Wichita University on a football scholarship but soon found his interest not in tradition schooling and left to pursue his glass blowing.
Rollin no longer blows glass but has kept himself active in the art world with his metal sculptures he designs. Many of his sculptures house a piece of his glass work too.
His birthplace was Columbus, Ohio, but raised in Miami, Floridia. It was in Florida that this transplant Kansan was destine for art. That is for another story….
Coming soon “Storytime with Rollin” to hear the rest of the story.

Rollin's Sculpture Journey

During that period, Karg mentioned that he had created approximately 50 of these unnamed sculptures, which have significantly contributed to his business. After his wife’s passing, returning to work became a lifeline for him. Karg took a break before resuming work on the sculptures. Currently, two of his latest sculptures are displayed outside Earthwood Artisans.
