Acrylic sculptures and lamps | Hivo G. Van Teal | Van Teal, Inc. | United States of America | 1976

There are many great looking examples of Van Teal’s work out there. Presented here are sculptures and a lamp that are representative of his work.  Prices of these acrylic objects vary, but anywhere between one hundred to a couple of hundred dollars is the retail norm.

Van Teal is a family owned company started by Hivo G. Van Teal in 1976.  Van Teal’s early work is rich in acrylic, especially in sculpture and lighting.  Above is a YouTube video introducing the Van Teal company and its history.
