Daniel David

Works in Stone

Daniel David is an award winning sculptor and stone carver based in Norwich. He trained at Bath and qualified in 1995.

His work is informed by an abiding interest in developing new languages in stone carving:demonstrating curiosity and humour and exploring the relationship between traditional techniques and contemporary visual culture.

This experimental approach, investigating the interplay between materiality, concept and scale, marks a shift in conventional practices with stone, as he playfully scrutinizes the tension between the images he chooses to represent – temporary symbols of their time – and the permanence of the material and its historic associations.

Daniel David is deeply interested in stones’ inherent characteristics and continues to explore its limitations and creative potential – introducing synthetic processes to traditional stonemasonry.
