Showcase May to June 2017
David has been involved with ceramics for most of his life, first working in the industry, and for the past twenty or more years sharing a studio with his wife and fellow potter Louise, until her death in 2016.
David produces earthenware pottery and framed tiles decorated with themes from the natural world of countryside and seashore. He has always loved to draw and paint and has adapted watercolour techniques for use with ceramic pigments. This gives him the freedom to illustrate the ceramic surface in his own personal way.
David continues to work from his Leicestershire home studio, but always with an eye on the distant coast.
David will be bringing some of Louise’s most recent pottery and tiles to exhibit alongside his own work.

Visions have been framed in many cameras over the years; film and digital. Currently in my camera bag sits a Nikon D800, a 20mm, 50mm, 105mm macro and 70-200mm lens collection, a Gitzo traveller tripod and a bundle of Lee Filters! I love feeling the quality of light; watchful natural or playful artificial light with my set of Elinchrom flash heads or Nikon speedlites. Nowadays out of the 'traditional' darkroom I process my images using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. I keep my editing simple like my subjects teach me to be
