David Flower British contemporary glass artist
We proud to welcome David Flower British cotemporary glass artists currently showing in our Colour of Life part I exhibition presenting his Codex seasons series.
David Flower has been a leading light in UK glassmaking for 10 years. He has worked exclusively by commission to the worldwide glass collecting fraternity and has pieces in collections as far afield as Saudi Arabia, Denmark and the United States.
David’s extensive expertise as a craftsman enables him to take on commissions of varied scale and complexity. He has lead on £250,000 sculptures alongside completing chandeliers, dining tables and his own beautiful pieces.
As an experienced maker David is in demand to make the work of many other glass designers. He worked closely with the celebrated Peter Layton for many years, symbiotically designing and making for the great man. Now, as ever, David finds that making the work of other artists represents his greatest challenge and Fran Staniland, Katherine Wightman and Gary Webb continue to stretch the master’s abilities.
“There is nothing that is impossible in glass. The material must be listened to, respected and worked with but ultimately will be coaxed into becoming. You cannot force it, but then again you cannot let it force you, you are in a symbiotic relationship with it; if you don’t love it then it will not love you back.” David Flower
