Most recently he has been working in metal to create large free-standing sculptures, mainly in mirror polished stainless steel and continuing the themes of his white three-dimensional canvasses.
Because David's hats have always been thought of as works of art with sculptural and architectural references, it should come as less of a surprise that the legendary hat maker has recently swapped his needle for a blowtorch.
He started making these large models in metal himself, in the late 1990s and completed his first commissioned sculpture in 1999. Standing over four metres high, 'Between Two Blues' is surrounded by the ocean on three sides in Nassau. Models of work in progress have formed the centrepiece of an exhibition of his work hosted by the British Embassy in Dubai.
