Accent Art Glass Presents: About the Artist

KAHLEN STUDIO

KENT KAHLEN

Kent Kahlen stumbled into the art department at Santa Ana Junior College one day, saw a couple of students working on glass projects, and he was blown away by the process of glass blowing. Since then he has been obsessed with glass art, and his obsession has paid off. Kent Kahlen's work can be found in public and private collections throughout the world.

For me, the making of glass sculpture is a meditative process. I am greatly inspired by the transformative process; the evolution of the medium from its raw state of sand into a translucent, crystalline, glass form. In my sculptures I am concerned with the relationship between form and space. By manipulating organic, bio-morphic shapes with geometric shapes, I create works that convey a harmonious and cohesive, fluid design.
