David Clarke is often cited as one of Britain’s most highly innovative silversmiths. Clarke has produced a wealth of covetable objects that have proven pivotal in the renaissance of contemporary British metalwork. Clarke has a well-earned reputation for producing engaging, intelligent and challenging domestic objects.The aesthetic most often associated with Clarke’s work relates to the subversive nature in which he responds to the
entrenched traditions of silversmithing, often taking it to surprising extremes. This absolute willingness to experiment and play inappropriately sets Clarke apart.
