Sehr schön fotografierte Mini-Doku von Danny Cooke über David Adrian Smith, einem der letzten „traditional ornamental Glass Artist“ Englands. Jede Menge klassischer Typo und Ornamente und Gold.

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.
