David Clement Davies is a highly praised Fantasy novelist who has won awards and been translated into several languages, from German and Italian to Russian and Japanese.  He was nominated for the Tir Na Nog prize for his children’s novel The Telling Pool. He has always loved sculpting too though and moved to Pietra Santa in Italy in 2017 to pursue a parallel dream.

David’s sculpture is eclectic, with a love of both the figurative and semi-abstract, and much inspired by nature, animals and telling stories, the themes of all his novels.  He was first inspired to sculpt again, a life-time hobby, when he caste a hummingbird in bronze in Cape Town in 2017, and he hasn’t stopped since!  Be inspired too, and just do it! He is currently working on a series of hummingbirds, other figurative work and a collection based on fairy tales and story telling, starting with a new adult interpretation.  For displayed work, specific commissions, editions, multiples and new work, please contact him directly at dclementdavies@aol.com.

David’s novels and stories, from his first Fire Bringer, shown above in the Italian edition, to The Sight and Fell, The Telling Pool and The Terror Time Spies, have won him fans and plaudits right around the world. He has been described a “A Master of Fantasy” by Booklist in the UK, won starred Kirkus reviews in the US, was a Family Award winner and a 76 Selection winner.

His sculpture arises out of his love of nature, animals, stories and adventure and he is particularly fond of trying to capture life and form in movement.

Richard Adams, author of the loved World Classic Watership Down, described David’s novel Fire Bringer as “one of the best anthropomorphic fantasies known to him” – sculpture is a different kind of appreciation, but his Hummingbird series have been variously described as “delightful”, “enchanting” and “absolutely beautiful”.  Perhaps all art, like great literature, should contain an element of magic.
