Applied Art Ulster Masterclass Lecture with David Clarke.
The lecture is taking place at The Ulster Museum on Thursday 4th February at 1pm. As well as this Clarke will also hold two workshops at Ulster University between the 4th-5th February.
David Clarke graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1997, and is often quoted as the enfant terrible, and the ‘bad boy’ of British silversmithing. Clarke’s work is a response and reaction to the entrenched traditions of silversmithing. His absolute willingness to experiment and play inappropriately sets Clarke apart.
Clarke has a way of transforming domestic household items into intelligent and engaging objects, he embraces traditional techniques and takes them to a whole new extreme. Alongside his own practice, Clarke is currently associate lecturer at Konstfack, Sweden, and previously worked at: St Lucas Antwerp, Belgium, South-Carelian Polytechnic Lappeenranta, Finland, Bergen National Academy of the Arts, Norway, Pforzheim School of Design, Germany and Rhode Island School of Design, USA.
Clarke’s work is in numerous private collections internationally and is also represented in many public collections and museums.
