A Look at Kent Kahlen

"Flattened Cylinder Red Vase"

Kahlen happened upon glass blowing on his way to becoming a chiropractor in 1988, and hasn't looked back. He found his true passion within the arts rather than medicine, and pursued an apprenticeship with a master glass artist from Los Angeles.

The continuous challenges involved in the process of blowing glass is what has inspired Kahlen to keep working and addressing new thoughts and ideas within his work. From classic vases and goblets to his self-termed "anti-bottles," Kahlen has explored a variety of avenues.

Since beginning his glass career, Kahlen has been involved in numerous exhibitions around southern California and the United States. Kent Kahlen's experience is as rich an varied as his beautiful art glass. Come into Chemers Gallery to view his functional and decorative work.
