Durk Valkema



Durk Valkema comes from a well-known family of glass artists in the Netherlands. He attended the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and worked with Stanislav Libensky at the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague. Today, he operates in many venues, from the design and execution of his own sculptural works to engineering glass systems and equipment for studio artists in Europe and the U.S. Valkema works with both hot and cold glass to analyze the architectonic principles of form and to develop kinetic plays of shadow and light.
