Born in Puerto Rico, Kiko Lopez established his first ceramics atelier at just 14 years of age. Despite this early mastery, he later gravitated to the glass art that would bring him international acclaim.
Today, Kiko Lopez’s work is the paragon of expressive yet functional glass art. An architect and industrial designer by education, he has been an innovator among glass artists for upwards of 30 years. His signature artworks combine techniques and inspiration from across a varied range of disciplines. The result is glasswork that captures attention and emotion just as easily as it does light.
Throughout his storied career, Kiko Lopez has produced furniture, chandeliers, doors, and other challenging commissions combining his expertise as an architect and an artist.
For the last 12 years, however, he has specialized in producing the acclaimed Kiko Lopez mirror. The mirrors, also known as Shadow Drawings, incorporate techniques he learned from other glass artists, historic texts, and his own explorations of the medium. Every Kiko Lopez mirror and artwork is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece brought to life in the South of France.
He has gone beyond mere artistry to champion his talent and meticulous craftsmanship in a way that has won him praise and admiration from interior designers, architects, and collectors from all over the world.Read less
