dierk van keppel
Dierk Van Keppel’s vision is continually ignited by nature and fired by the kiln. Through a process both complex and rewarding, Van Keppel combines the ancient craft of glassblowing with the modern approach of fusing glass.
The Van Keppel signature aesthetic reflects his appreciation for symmetrical, evocative creations—unique in their imaginative and rich palette; communicating beauty through form, color, clarity, opacity, and depth.
Van Keppel, a trained artisan, has been crafting sophisticated, free-blown pieces with his talented team in his Kansas studio, since 1981. Every gathering of molten glass is an exploration in design using a blowpipe and artisan tools.
Each piece is a handcrafted artistic expression with one-of-a- kind characteristics - color variations, textures, and glass bubbles. Wall sculptures, chandeliers, vessels and other fine art glass works by Van Keppel are showcased in numerous museums, galleries, and private collections worldwide.
