Richard van der Graaf

Expert Ceramics

I decided to stop my IT career and follow my dream: to become an expert in glass

As a former IT professional with a consolidated career, at some point Richard remembered the good times at the flea markets and fairs with his parents when he was a child. These memories lit up his fascination for curiosities and rare objects. His in-laws also own a glass gallery, so it was not surprising that Richard started getting more and more interested in glass and its craftsmanship.

With so many contacts, a lot of prior knowledge about glass and evident enthusiasm, Richard decided to stop his career in IT and follow his dream: to become an expert in glass.

Now, Richard works very hard on improving the glass auctions, bringing them to the next level. He makes sure that Catawiki's glass auctions offer pieces by well-known artists or that have exquisite craftsmanship. He offers sellers and potential buyers his unquestionable experience and knowledge. Furthermore, as a current glass collector, he can perfectly recognise what glass lovers are looking for.
  • Over 8 years of professional experience
  • Passionate about glass with a well-known provenance
