Rachel David works primarily in steel and non ferrous metals. — “I think of furniture with a wide interpretive allowance, sometimes I call my work conceptual furniture or art furniture. I have a multi faceted practice but the angles dividing them are not crisp, furniture bleeds into sculpture and vica-versa up and upcoming architectural elements grow seats and tables.”
