David Ivens
Toronto, ON

David Ivens brings a unique combination of skill and craftsmanship to silversmithing. A firm foundation in design, fabrication and manipulation of decorative metal combined with silversmithing techniques provide him opportunities to cross boundaries. He enjoys the challenge of melding historical techniques with innovative ideas to design and craft pieces.
David has been developing skills in metal working and fabrication techniques since 1970. He has built and maintained a retail manufacturing and restoration business specializing in classic illumination.
Primarily self taught, David continues to develop his skills, training in Canada, Ireland and USA.  As well as designing and crafting his own pieces, he has done numerous commissions from memorials to contemporary lighting.  David has completed a legacy of work in heritage lighting in historic projects throughout Canada and he is continuing on a path of discovery and self expression in silversmithing.

"Grave Goods: pieces that give meaning to a shrine. "
