David Flower Glass Maker
Amateur: from the Latin ‘Amare’ - to love.
10 December 10-4
21 years as a professional glassmaker has taught David that he is truly an amateur; he does it because he loves it.
David cut his teeth in the workshop of Peter Layton’s London Glassblowing before moving to Sunderland. As Artist in residence, he made sculpture by commission worldwide. Now his work is all about using the material to its best advantage, employing classical forms and gently sculpted shapes in the hope of conveying his simple love of his craft.
