About David HarberPrevious Next
You’ll find David Harber’s award-winning artworks gracing some of the most prestigious addresses across the world – from public spaces to luxury developments, hotels to private gardens. His sculptures always react to and engage with the unique spaces they are commissioned for.
While he is best known for his outdoor sculptures, his team’s knack for sensitively tailoring each project to reflect the identity of that space has made his work popular with interior designers too.
Inspired by the interaction of light and reflection, David uses materials such as brass, copper, bronze, stainless steel and stone. Every piece is made in his workshop where he has built a team that possess exceptional breadth of knowledge and skill.
In 2016, the company was honored with The Queens Award for International Trade for outstanding overseas growth while remaining committed to British design and craftsmanship.
Most David Harber projects involve customizing existing designs by choosing materials, size, finishes, etching and engraving in seemingly endless combinations.
David Harber also designs and creates fully custom sculptures and water features. For projects like these, David provides personal support: helping the client to shape their vision from the first site visit and conceptual sketches through to working drawings and installation.
The playful use of light and reflection is a key element making his sculptures so complex and enchanting.
David Harber pieces often invite the viewer to question what they see and to usher them into another dimension with the use of shape, media and materials.
Rough-cut slate is transformed into smooth sculptural pieces, whilst highly polished stainless steel mirrors its environment, reflecting seasonal change and becoming part of its surroundings.
Prestigious projects that can be seen by the public include sculptures in the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, the Liberty Center mixed use development in Cincinnati, the Al-Rawdha Palace in Bahrain and the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in France.
A highlight of David’s career was having three of his pieces unveiled by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, and one by King Charles III.
