Hans Teppich was born in Germany in 1904.
After finishing High-School in Berlin he learned woodcarving and worked in a furniture factory for three years. During this period he studied art in evening classes, and then continued studying for ten more years in morning classes in the “Kunstgewerbe und Handwerkerschule” in Berlin. He acquired a broad range of art education, including: drawing, sculpture, metalwork, bronze casting, metal turning, and interior design. Hans Teppich won many prizes during his studies for different projects in which he participated. His bronze and stone sculptures of animals were presented in an exhibition at the Berlin Zoo. In 1933 he immigrated to Israel and established a workshop in Jerusalem.
In his workshop he created different practical art objects including Hanukkah lamps, Candlesticks, Mezuzot, Israeli flower shaped Spice boxes, many beautiful pieces of jewelry and unique chess sets. Teppich was a genius artist. He became famous for his Biblical figures and Judaic items. Hans Teppich passed away in 1983 at the age of 79 in Israel.
