David speaks about his life and work....
I purchase other colors in the form of powdered enamels, frit (different sized chips of glass) or bars of colored glass that are incorporated in my designs with what is melted in the furnace.
I also create parts such as murrini (complex layered glass rods) made in an Italian style to become inclusions in my work. I often incorporate dichroic glass, 23K gold leaf, silver nitrate, tin chloride and other materials into my work in order to produce certain effects. Continually striving for excellence, I journey through the creative process for self fulfillment.
|Fire, combined with natural elements, allows me to
orchestrate the extraordinary art of glass making. My fascination with
color, texture, and form, has kept me on a thirty year quest for
excellence in design and craftsmanship.
In 1997, David was nominated by his fellow glass artists to serve as a juror for the American Crafts Council.
We are honored to have his work in our gallery!
