About the tutor
David has his own Stained Glass studio, making (to commission) and restoring windows and Tiffany type lamps. His work can be found all around the world. David is currently working with Dalle de Verre made in the UK in the 1960s, showcasing these beautiful slabs of glass in new and exciting ways, he is also the only artist who knows traditional Dalle de Verre techniques, and currently the only one working with that glass in the UK. He has also just finished the fourth commemorative window at RAF Bentley Priory Museum on Stanmore, North London for Sir Hugh Dowding.
David loves colour and its interplay with light, and takes inspiration from large open vistas & densely wooded landscapes – two very different scenarios but both firmly fixed in nature and his connection with touch, vision and feelings.
