David Van Noppen

North Carolina native David Van Noppen has owned and operated Van Noppen Glass, an art glass company, since 1986. The artist's recent move to Southern California has further fueled his glassblowing of one-of-a-kind blown and cast glass pieces. Van Noppen has long held an attraction to the process of moving a sold to a molten, aqueous state and arriving at a sold form again. A long time rock climber and hang glider, the artist, with his passion for the environment, has always been fascinated by the transformation of properties in nature. The road to mastering glassblowing demands patience, flexibility and a vision. And for the artist is also captures the wonder of spontaneity, often eclipsed in the hurried pace of our lives today.
