David been working as a glass artist since 2002, and started his own studio in 2003. Before this he was a fisherman, working out of Hayle harbour catching crab and lobsters. Going back even further, he has had a variety of jobs, including outdoor pursuits instructor, surfboard repairer, and barman, to name a few! Many of these jobs were seasonal, which allowed him to get away in the winter and travel in search of warm water and good surf. Surfing has been an addiction for many years, although he doesn't like the cold water here in the winter much anymore!
