About

Exquisite sculpture in lead crystal by emerging artist, Karsten Oaks. This gorgeous piece was created by carving blocks of solid crystal into graceful, sinuous shapes and bonding them together to create the sculpture. The piece was then finished with a pop of strategically placed color. For this sculpture, Oaks chose deep violet and sky blue. The simplicity of the form belies the hours in the studio carving and polishing with diamond saws and other tools. Karsten knew from an early age that he wanted to be one of the best glass coldworkers in the world. He received his B.F.A. in Glass from the Appalachian Center for Crafts in 2008. He has done freelance coldworking for world famous glass masters including Lino Taglipietra. We would love to share Karsten's story with you and why he is an artist that you should have in your collection.
