David Marques

David Marques is a ceramic artist who creates beautifully intricate work for both large-scale art installations as well as collectable objets d’arts. He has worked extensively with prestigious Portuguese porcelain and crystal manufacturer Vista Alegre to create a series of permanent installations for their flagship stores in Lisbon, Porto, Madrid and Barcelona.

Born in Switzerland of Portuguese origin, David worked for many years in Geneva’s watch and jewellery industry. He draws on this background in his art, working with painstaking precision at every stage of the making process, from conception through to design and production. Inspired by his rich cultural heritage, David’s work reinterprets the traditional and familiar in new and surprising ways.

His work has also been showcased at the trade fairs, Maison & Objet in Paris, Ambiente in Frankfurt and at Decorex in London.
