Keith Sheppard - Glass Artist
Keith originally comes from Devon in South West England. Until 2009, he had a career in the public service. After a life changing accident he decided to turn to glass making specialising in fusing glass.
Keith trained in both Ireland and England over a 2 year period with notable artists including the renowned Karl Haron. Keith works predominately with copper in glass to create unique vases and bowls. More recently Keith has been involved and focused on creating unique high value sculpture pieces for gallery display e.g. The Guinness Gallery, Foxrock Village, Dublin & The Cecilia Colman Gallery, London and the Puffin Gallery, Ballycastle.
Keith’s work is now sells in Northern Ireland, London & Dublin. Collectors from other International Markets are also developing interest in Keith’s work.
“In a relatively short period of time I have been catapulted forward, accelerating my individual creativity and exploitation of the qualities of kiln formed glass. By bringing glass and metals together, I have attempted not only to express my individuality, but to also create a strong visual attraction to ‘touch and feel’ the nature, outline and identity of each piece.
I am excited about the future and my ultimate legacy to the world of Glass Artistry.”
