Both of David's parents were professional painters, so it was natural for him to follow in their footsteps pursuing art making as a life. Once he touched clay he had found his medium! Primarily self-taught, he has focused for many years on working with porcelain, under glaze painting his wheel-formed items with subtle floral decorations then high firing them to a luminous state. Years of pottery making, learning his craft, and traveling to art shows along the Eastern Seaboard led to opening his own store in Flat Rock, NC with his jeweler wife, Molly Sharp. After 40 years, he continues to be amazed at the enjoyment found in the making and sharing of this beautiful art form.
