David moved to Pembrokeshire from Australia in1998. Together with his wife, Lucy, he makes all of the sculptures by freehand lampwork. This is achieved by manipulating rods of borosilicate glass in an oxygen and propane flame of approximately 1200'c. The main component of glass is sand, when the sand is heated it becomes a molten liquid, this is now glass. Glass is a liquid in a frozen state this is where the name Liquid Sand comes from. After working with glass for 30 years David's philosophy is "you can't just work glass you have to work with it"
