(1861 - 1943)

— Artist, Zanesville-native —

A graduate of Zanesville High School, Karl Kappes studied art in Cincinnati before moving on to New York, Paris, and Munich. In the 1890's, Karl began working at the nationally known Weller Pottery; advancing to foreman in 1901, and lead designer in 1904. Kappes became most widely recognized for his non-Dickens designs of Native Americans, monks, golfers, and dancers, as are shown on the Dickens II series and Louwelsa vases, signing his works "KK." Leaving Weller in 1909, Kappes continued painting portraits, nudes, and landscapes from his last known Zanesville studio in suite 326 of the Masonic Temple. In 1912, Karl moved to Texas, Ohio, Just west of Toledo, where he remained until his death in 1943.
