JanHein van Stiphout

1956, Tilburg (NL)

JanHein van Stiphout is the son of a traditional stained glass artist. His concept based work takes the inherent properties of glass such as resilience, flexibility and fragility to the extreme.
In 1988 JanHein van Stiphout was a founder member of a group called “De Maatschap internationaal” together with two other artists. The process of collaboration strengthens their ideas and enables them to create large scale kinetic work.
Besides his work as an autonomous glass artist he is also an instructor in glass techniques and organizes classes and lectures about innovative glass techniques and design in the Netherlands and abroad.
