Graduated in Fine Art (Bristol) in the early 1970s, David is a multi-media arts practitioner. For many years an international fire artist and fire theatre director, all his past creations went up in flames.
His work has been seen worldwide at festivals from LA to the Caucasus. He himself has had many incarnations, including circus clown, designer of mazes, labyrinths, landscapes, wicker figures and pebble mosaics, festival and theatre director, and sculptor.
Much of my sculpture in the past has been ephemeral and fiery. ‘Drawings in Stainless Steel’, my latest project, takes themes from my fire work but gives them a permanence in steel, but still, I hope, with an ephemeral feeling of passing memory, of air, space, the movement of line and reflections in the landscape.
