David Wilson creates award-winning, large-scale glass commissions around the country for universities, government entities, corporations, churches, synagogues, metro stations—even airports (Newark and Chicago). One of his design awards references his " elegant and deliberate juxtaposition of geometry and color [that] results in a brilliant melding of tradition with contemporary artistic and architectural intent." (GSA, Wash., D.C.)
Past clients include Merck & Co., Inc; Port Authority of NY & NJ; General Services Administration (GSA), Wash., DC; and the College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, MA., New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; and Washington DC WMATA, as well as many private collectors. His most recent projects were in Wisconsin (2016) and Rochester (2017.)
The Corning Museum of Glass Rakow Research Library and Rowan University Archives and Special Collections, Glassboro, NJ, among other institutions, are in the process of acquiring his work for their permanent archival collections.
Wilson also maintains an active studio practice with a focus on his quirky "box art," that often express a socio-political commentary.
Wilson earned a National Design Diploma in the U.K. He studied at the Middleboro College of Art, U.K., and pursued post-grad studies in London at Central School for Art and Crafts.
