David Poston studied jewellery design at Hornsey College of Art, working as an artist-jeweller between 1974-1980 before pausing to work in international development, and then starting again from 2000 onwards. He currently works from his studio in Suffolk, making jewellery from non-precious metals and other materials.
His pieces with tapestry were introduced when he worked in collaboration with Johnathan Clever, a weaver at Dovecot studios in Edinburgh.
His works are held by a number of public collections in the UK, including the V&A and the Fitzwilliam Museum.
'Jewellery is a way of reconciling people to their bodies, making them feel switched on. It is about how they feel inside and how they can reconcile that feeling.'
