David work is made using a white earthenware clay which is decorated with slips, glazed and once-fired. He is inspired by natural and industrial landscapes as well as themes of communication, and his work reflects a love of painting.
Using his background in architecture, David designs the shape of his tea sets and tableware on the drawing board, before having fun with the hand-painted decoration.
Each piece is handmade at David's studio in Nottingham, and because he paints each one, every piece is unique!
