Originally from Vietnam David has traveled throughout Asia, eventually making Canada his home. He is a graduate of Sheridan College and spent several years as a Glass Studio resident at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto. Most recently, David has teamed up with three other well known Canadian glass blowers to form Kingston Glass Studio and Gallery, an artist run, group studio based out of Kingston, Ontario.
David's work is an attempt in balancing technique and concept, and the controlled application of Japanese silver leaf in his glass is a testament to that. He is deeply inspired by the technical cane work of Italian master glassblowers but applies these techniques to his much more contemporary forms.
“Glass is the medium that best reflects my innermost feelings. When approaching glass in its fluid state, I am deeply moved by the metamorphosis from a molten state to the solidified shape of my design.”
