David is a professional photographer, with more than 25 years experience. ‘I still love the sound of the shutter. I still love the buzz of capturing ‘that shot’. And I am passionate about teaching other people what I’ve learned to help them produce their own terrific photos’.
Both David & Mary Woolaway are multifaceted, creative people, both with a B.A. in Visual Art, whose practice spans jewellery, ceramics, photography, painting and scraper-board etching. Drawing inspiration from nature, subtle forms, textural details and the environment, they strive to apply high attention to detail, artisan techniques to every piece of work they produce.
While diverse in medium and form, David and Mary's body of work is cohesive and unmistakably recognizable for its intricate aesthetic, distinct illustrative quality and unique detail. Mary's detailed jewellery pieces clearly speak to the surface detailing of her scraper-board etchings and reflect in the detail of her watercolour portraits. In contrast David prefers the minimalism of his hand built ceramic pieces with their clean lines which is further reflected in the unique way he treats his photographs. .
These beautiful photographic works are currently exhibiting as part of our latest Exhibition.. ' In The Eye of The Beholder'.
Each piece of David's jewellery is created, from conception to finish, completely by hand, using Sterling Silver & Precious Gemstones. No two pieces are the same. Commission pieces inquiries are also welcome.
