About David

I studied ceramics and glass at Plymouth University College of Art and Design, and glass at Farnham University College of Art and Design. I have been a practicing artist for 20 years mainly making colourful lamps, bowls, and abstract sculptures out of glass.

While at Plymouth art college I invented a new technique for fusing glass together which means I can make fused 3D glass sculptures using a mold, the glass structures can be horizontally or vertical and can be as thin as 1mm without air pockets occurring.

Last year I totally changed direction by making colourful ceramic sculptures. I like colour; 

Each one of my sculptures has two sides to them like a two-page book, and each one has a true story behind them. Some of my ideas come from various people I have known over the years. Recently I have been focusing on life, the universe and everything, political, the news and things rattling around inside my head. The sculptures are mainly ceramic, I also use gold and silver leaf, liquid gold and silver, resin, paper, and jewelry. My ceramics sculptures have been described as philosophical quirky Pop Art some humorous, but some more

serious.
