Dan Dibble


Born in 1983 in Palmerston North, Dan Dibble is the son of accomplished local artists Fran and Paul Dibble.

Dan started working with bronze from the age of eight, when the Dibble foundry was located in the family's backyard. Over the years, Dan continued to assist at the foundry, and in 2022 mounted his first exhibition of bronze sculptures at Zimmerman Art Gallery.

Dan's sculptural explorations challenge the possibilities of bronze casting. Describing his work as a journey of discovery, Dan is keen to build on the experience garnered in the Dibble foundry to pioneer his own processes for working in bronze.
