After 30 years as a sculptor and carver, and lecturer at the polytechnic, he took a different direction in the scale of his work and medium.

    David likes to work in a hands on manner, developing news ideas and techniques, and expressing narrative ideas through mixes of materials and processes.

    Above all else he likes work that expresses the finger print of the maker both in idea and execution.
