Artist of the moment……..David Burnham Smith

 

David Burnham Smith is a self taught artist from the United Kingdom who is renown for his work with ceramics.

David B. Smith is self taught as an artist.

The artist was injured as a young man on a motorcycle. This caused him to remain still and as a result he learned to draw and practiced daily. His hospital stay lasted nearly two years. During this time another artist ended up giving him lessons whilst he was in hospital, the artist name was Erian Slack.

After he left the hospital Smith was a studio assistant for Slack. After this period of time Smith was able to find full time work as a graphics designer.

Smith started off as a collector of fine china. What he bought was usually damaged, but it was what he could afford. Smith researched his subject and eventually made his own pottery restoration studio in his own house.
