Artist's Statement: Both of his parents were professional painters, so it was natural for David to follow in their footsteps pursuing art making as a life. Once he touched clay he found his medium! Primarily self taught, he has spent years producing functional wares and decorative pots in electric and gas kilns. The introduction of wood firing and building a wood/soda/salt kiln have given new direction to his 30+ year career in clay. Following his fascination for surface variations revealed in atmospheric firings has led to the current body of work focusing on altered wheel-thrown stoneware and porcelain vessels. He celebrates the pursuit of strong forms and rich surfaces in well made pots.
