David Clarke: Dead on Arrival

Published: 03.10.2011

Clarke is easily the most prominent avant-garde figure in the area of silversmithing here in the UK and has a well earned reputation for creative thinking and innovation.

Clarke now devilishly takes antique solid silver objects, treasured by many and preserved by museums and ‘messes’ with them. Clarke strips it of its value by allowing lead to erode the silver.

The first in a new collection entitled “Dead on Arrival.” will definitely take the world of silversmithing to a new level.

New work for 60|40 exhibition at Gustavsberg Konsthall Sweden. Opens 8 October until 8 January 2012.
