A MONUMENTAL RISE

Born in Oxford, David trained at The Sir Henry Doulton School of Sculpture, specialising in portrait and figurative sculpture. In 1988 David became the youngest sculptor ever to have been offered a position at London’s Madame Tussauds: travelling the world for sittings with many famous figures, including Freddie Mercury, Joan Collins, Madonna, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ronald Reagan and Yasser Arafat.
 

THE LOST WAX PROCESS

All these pieces use the ‘lost wax’ process, a method developed by the ancient Egyptians... A new ceramic shell mould is both made and destroyed for each individual piece cast. One of the most costly methods of casting: it ensures the nuance and detail of the original work is preserved in every successive casting.
 

THE 'GOBLIN' SERIES

"I have used my experience gained through years of studying and sculpting the human form to create life-like characters from an unseen world of fairies, mermaids, goblins and elves. I constantly endeavour to make my creatures as believable as possible. The intention is that they should look as though they might jump up and disappear into the undergrowth the moment the viewers back is turned."
