Kit Karbler – Denver, CO

booth-179-kit-karblerBorn in Sandusky, OH on September 8th 1954. I earned my BFA from Ohio University and furthered my studies at UCLA. Today I am the sole proprietor, designer and artist of Blake Street Glass Studio. I reside in Denver, Colorado with my life partner of many years, Dmitri Rudenko and our wonderful dog Macy.

The Team

A trained team of young artisans in the hot and cold shop are at hand to assist me in the enormous task of implementing my artwork to fruition. With the help and skills provided by these people, I am able to produce the unique and labor intensive, beautifully handcrafted glass sculptures sought after by collectors worldwide.

The Work
At first it’s soft, simple and beautiful — like making candy. But when you are working with 40 pounds of glass at 2,000 degrees it’s like wrestling an alligator. You have to conquer it before turning it into a vessel.

The Theme
The primary purpose of my work is not to hold objects but to hold your imagination and light.

The Belief

We believe in the importance of giving back to our community and help out whenever we can. It might not always be possible to contribute cash to a non-profit organization but we take great pride in donating our artwork to those that are committed to help the not-so-fortunate.
