MEET DAVID PERRY

Fused Glass/Ceramic wares – Handmade in Cornwall along with Photography Prints/Greeting Cards

David was born and lived in Gloucestershire starting his career making spectacles in a factory, then a pensions administrator for a large corporate company which then led into in I.T. for over 15 years. He eventually moved to Cornwall in 2011 and worked in Penzance where he continued in the I.T. role, however living by the sea and adapting to the Cornish way of life, meant he soon wanted to explore life a lot more which also included scuba diving. In Nov 2017, David quit his normal office based job and decided to explore his creative side by going self employed, starting with photography but also making art using fused glass (and also ceramics from Jan 2020).

2018/2019 has been a learning phase, with photography (Perchance Photography) currently studying and aiming to achieve a LRPS (Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society). In April 2019 he built his own home workshop dedicated to glass/ceramics where he can continue to learn and create more artwork.

Fused Glass/Ceramic Artwork, Photography Prints and Greeting Cards can be purchased from David Perry Glass website (previously called Perchance Design) or via his Etsy shop. David was also a member of a shared gallery space in an old converted railway station just outside of St.Agnes in Cornwall for 2 years called St.Agnes Station Crafts. Unfortunately in March 2020 this Gallery had to close due to the Corona Virus Pandemic where people had to self isolate. In these conditions, it was just not possible to keep it going and sadly closed.
