David White – The Whittlings
During the year-long Lock-down periods of 2020/2012, David has spent much of his self-enforced time near home, exploring the forest and woodland floor local to his home in north Wales. This curiously has led to a series of works that are directly inspired by the shapes and feelings being in the woods during this period. All the woods and natural materials for this collection of pieces has been collected from windfall or foraged wood from the woodlands and inspired by what the materials suggest. An exercise in listening and open to new ideas.
David studied visual communication, has a career background and a graphic/brand designer and food photographer. Unsatisfied with the virtual and technology driven world of digital media, David made a conscious choice to leave the computer screen behind, and work with his hands, producing real world functional designs in wood.
