David Clarke graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1997, and, starting with his innovative, delicate, balancing structures for supporting fruit, his collections of objects ever since have progressively and systematically broken most of the rules of silversmithing. While he sits firmly at the forefront of silver practice in the UK and is well-represented in significant European public and private collections, he rejects notions of beauty, happily uses corrosives such as salt and lead to transform surfaces, and takes pride in an iconoclastic attitude to his precious material.
