Maker Profile

MakerDavid Gray

Maker in Residence 2022

David Gray is an Edinburgh-based ceramic artist specialising in architectural ceramics. His work focuses on the play of light and shadow created by forms in the natural world and built environments. In-depth explorations of form, structure, texture, and colour inform each piece with qualities that create dynamic, soothing environments that reconnect us back to nature.  

David’s previous work is held in the permanent collection at the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, and in the private collection of HRH Prince of Wales.
