"Extra Large Phosphate in White and Purple" by Rollin Karg is a sculptural piece featuring hand blown glass.
A highly unusual piece, this features a core of white Phosphate Glass overlaid with a pattern in purple, encase in clear silica glass. Phosphate Glass — a completely different material — is used for some medical equipment, but is not a usual material for sculptural glass blowing. It allows Rollin to get colors and textures regular (silica) glass cannot do. The piece is 44" tall by 9" wide.
"Who said that art isn’t functional? Art gives any static location life. Glass sculptures are a dynamic, dimensional and intoxicating art form that creates a level of sophistication and aesthetic beauty… anywhere."- Rollin Karg
