David Chilton

David studied at Cardiff (formerly UWIC) graduating in 2001. He is based in Bristol & is a member of Westcountry Potters.

Taking inspiration from English porcelain figures, Chinese Han Dynasty tomb figures and Gothic art, David produces figurative sculpture and vessels in stoneware and porcelain paper clay. Narratives inspired by fairy tales, folklore, myths and legends are evident in the unique pieces he creates. The individuality of each figure is highlighted with touches of glaze, precious lustres and metallic oxides, capturing the spiritual qualities often found in religious artefacts.
