Intro
(...) David Clarke explores texture and colour, moving away from the traditional high polish of silver in favour of matting, even deliberate corroding of the surface.(...)
David Clarke neuste Arbeiten führen uns vor Augen, wie Traditionen im einem erweiterten Kontext gesehen und erlebt werden können. Familientrouvaillen finden eine neue Bestimmung. Es ist Clarke‘s Eigenart Abgegriffenes mit neuem Leben zu versehen und somit Form und Inhalte neu auszuloten.

David Clarke explores texture and colour, moving away from the traditional high polish of silver in favour of matting, even deliberate corroding of the surface. He actively embraces connetions with the characteristics of other materials, while celebrating the endless malleabe form of silver. 

Dr. Helen Clifford 2005 


For such a pure, proper and valuable material as silver influences come from my journey to and from the workshop, my observations; the things I capture in a blink of a second influences come from the street; filth and oddities are what I collect within the hectic urban environment of London. My brain captures information quicker than my hands can produce. The conservativeness of the discipline really pushes me to become more creative, chalenging and playful. It is essential to keep this discipline alive and forward thinking. Combining other materials such as salt and lead has been important to really attack the silver physically. Likewise to adapt unwanted, unvalued objects and give them a new life and opportunity is to make them relevant once again. It is essential to push the boundaries and the potential for the discipline and raise questions and innovate through making.
