Caples, Gene

(1913 - 2015)

Eugene L. Caples was a designer, craftsman and sculptor who worked in Kansas City. He earned an MFA in sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art, under Julius Schmidt, in 1965. He worked primarily with cast, cut and welded bronze in abstract designs, sometimes with iron and aluminum as well. His furniture designs from the 1960s were mostly made of wood, standing wire rod bases.

Bloomberry is an antiques dealer specialized in exquisite twentieth century design, founded in 2005 by Patricia Keurentjes and Leander Meerman. Our strength is that we read the past differently and do have a keen eye for yet little known masterpieces. Our company is housed in a former textile factory that spans 5.000 square meters. It is located just near Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands, within two hours from Amsterdam, Bruxelles and Cologne. Only part of the collection is shown on the website. A visit -  by appointment only - gives you the full insight.
