David A Smith – Sign Artist
David A Smith is a name that has become synonymous in Sign-Writing and Glass gilding circles, with high quality, hand crafted reverse glass signs and decorative silvered and gilded mirrors.
In this short documentary, we reveal behind the scenes work, techniques and visions that Dave uses when carrying out his passion as a glass embosser – One of the few remaining traditional UK glass artists.
A short follow up film of one of two mirrors recently completed. The mirrors were hand made using the traditional embossing and brilliant cutting techniques from over 100 years ago.
