About Karen Willenbrink-Johnsen & Jasen Johnsen

Throughout history, owls have symbolized widely varying ideas and experiences to people around the world. Few creatures have held such a constant yet shifting position in human mythology, being at times revered, and at times feared and despised. While they are alternately associated with vision and perspective. They are watchers – and we see ourselves reflected in their wide, knowing eyes.

Karen and Jasen are also watchers. They have taken the time to observe – to really see – every feather, talon and branch presented in their work, and invite us to do the same. While glass is increasingly being employed as a sculptural medium, the level of realism found in Karen and Jasen’s work is unprecedented. Combining unmatched technical mastery with a profound love for their medium, nature, and each other, these artists are using sculpted glass to explore entirely new territory.
