David Reekie

London born David Reekie's cast glass art can be found in the V&A in London, the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, and the Glass Museum in Ebeltoft, Denmark. Over the decades he and his work have been featured in countless periodicals and in over 60 exhibits worldwide.

Much of his work is fun (Robot Series), it is frequently contemplative (A Captive Audience, Self Portrait) and it is always skillful.

"My work is influenced by our reaction and adaptation to the society that surrounds us. We live in a world that grows more complex and difficult to comprehend. It has tensions and temptations that pull us in different directions. This creates characters and situations that provide a constant source of material from which I take my ideas," reads Reekie's artist statement.
