Born Trent Vale, Stoke-on Trent, Staffordshire in 1941.
Dav5d attended Portland House Junior Technical School, Burslem from 1955 to 1957 then worked at Josiah Wedgwood & Sons Ltd. from 1957 to 1962 whilst attending part time / day release at the Burslem School of Art where he gained his N.D.D. and a scholarship to the Royal College of Art in 1962 studying Industrial Ceramics gaining his Des. R.C.A. in 1965. David then returned to teach Art in Stoke-on -Trent schools from 1967 to 2005.
David describes "Although my early development was essentially one of training in ceramics as long as I can remember painting and drawing was an activity in which I felt more interested."
"A fascination with the history of painters and their work began at adolescence and was reinforced with the teaching at Burslem College of Art. Teachers like Arthur Berry and his life classes were always stimulating."
"My interest in drawing from the model was something I felt important to continue throughout my teaching career with the opportunity to do so at various venues including the Barracks in Newcastle-under-Lyme and at Keele."
"I Left the Potteries to reside in St Ives, Cornwall where I exhibit regularly and have collectors across the UK and beyond. I am part of the Cornish art scene and reside in the cottages where Alfred Wallis resided."
Barewall are delighted to show David Moore at our Burslem gallery where it all started for David alongside one of his old tutors Arthur Berry.
David's son recently sent the gallery a film of David Moore in his Cornwall home and studio we will be releasing this online soon.
