Kenny Pieper

 

Kenny Pieper was born in Birmingham, Alabama in 1959. Somewhere in his early school years he realized he had artistic talents and an inclination to want to create things. Pieper began his formal education in the arts in 1974 where he attended the respected Penland School of Crafts in Penland, North Carolina through 1977. He went on to study from 1977-1979 at the Center for Creative Studies College of Art and Design in Detroit, Michigan. He finished his glass studies from 1979-1980 where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California. Pieper initially apprenticed and went on to be an integral part of the team at the studio operated by Michael Cohn and MollyStone in California. Cohn and Stone have long been at the top of their field in glassblowing and are well known for their tortoise shell series which Pieper played a significant role in. Since 1996 he has been the glass studio coordinator at the Penland School of Crafts in addition to creating his own designs. Pieper has displayed his work in a large number of exhibitions since 1980 all over the continental United States. Permanent public collections of his work can be found in The Corning Glass Museum in Corning, New York and The Asheville Art Museum in Ashland, North Carolina. Pieper has created many intricate designs with a high degree of difficulty. In some of his pieces he incorporates the "Reticello" technique as well as the "Primavera" technique. Both are Italian glassblowing processes reserved for more accomplished artists with a good command of their refined skills.
