The forms and textures of David’s work are inspired by the natural world and the effects of corrosion and erosion over time.  A new range of work involves carving the surface, resulting in a strong sense of surface pattern, this reflects David’s interest in organic, natural forms and features.  Each piece is uniquely constructed using hand building techniques and a range of dry matt glazes which are sponged and painted on the surfaces.

David was born in London and trained in graphic design, graduating in 1966 with a diploma in Art and Design (Dip.AD).  After working in education for many years specialising in Ceramics, David decided to take early retirement so that he could concentrate full time on his work.  Since relocating to the Forest of Dean in 2010 he has established his present workshop.
Examples of David’s work have been featured in many major exhibitions and are housed in both public and private collections.  As well as being a full member of the Devon Guild, David is also a professional member of the Craft Potters Association of Great Britain (CPA).
