David Reekie

David Reekie is an eminent English glass sculptor who uses drawing and glass casting to express his unique vision of the human condition. Born in the London Borough of Hackney (1947), he discovered an early love of drawing that has remained central to his life and work for well over four decades.

An early enthusiast of cast glass, Reekie has developed his own distinct version of the lost wax casting method. The lost wax process can be traced back to the Romans and involves creating a wax model which is then encased in a casting material and steamed out.
