October 7 - Globe Luncheon with David Ivens, Silversmith

October 7: David Ivens, Internationally Known and Award-Winning Silversmith

David trained as a silversmith in the traditional methods, having studied in Europe and across North America. Among his many activities, David has been teaching silversmithing, forging and metal forming at several community colleges.
This past spring, David’s exhibition at the AGO earned rave reviews. These works will be shown at the DCMA as part of the Silver Anniversary weekend (November 16 and 17). 
Prior to that, David will bring some of his beautiful pieces to the luncheon as well as some of his collection of smithing tools. He will tantalize us with photos of silver that we can only dream of owning. David will reveal his techniques and help us to understand what he has to do to make his wonderful creations. 
Some of his recent achievements include: Best Holloware Goblet, Ritual Goblet Exhibition; Beth Tzedec, 2010; Cheongiu International Craft Biennale 2009 Exhibitor; 60th Anniversary Metal Arts Guild Show, Judges’ Choice Award.
