David Ivens brings a unique combination of skill and craftsmanship to
silversmithing. A firm foundation in design, fabrication and manipulation
of decorative metal combined with silversmithing techniques provide him opportunities to
cross boundaries. He enjoys the challenge of melding historical techniques
with innovative ideas to design and craft pieces.
David has been developing skills in metal working and fabrication
techniques since 1970. He has built and maintained a retail manufacturing
and restoration business specializing in classic illumination.
Primarily self taught, David continues to develop his skills, training
in Canada, Ireland and USA. As well as designing and crafting
his own pieces, he has done numerous commissions from memorials
to contemporary lighting. David has completed a legacy
of work in heritage lighting in historic projects throughout Canada and
he is continuing on a path of discovery and self expression in silversmithing.
