David Teer

 

Dave was introduced to steel through his work as a boilermaker and has found that the medium allows him to express both his love of nature and his passion for form and balance.
Dave works predominantly with steel and found objects, using his innate sense of ‘rightness’ when deciding how a piece will go together. Often there is no initial concept for a work but one idea can evolve as many finished sculptures, all with an attachment to the original idea, but not requiring it.

'To reflect, acknowledge, respect and work.

It's only through form that we can realise emptiness'. Anon
