David Stepan enjoys and explores the nature of materials. From the warmth and immediacy of hammered copper, to the peculiar grains of wood, and the way materials capture time and place.
Employing his Bachelor of Fine Arts training and decades of experience as a bespoke furniture designer maker he blurs the lines between Art, service and décor, creating objects that transcend their purpose.
His passion is now directed to a more immediate expression of his interest in materials. Especially how objects from sustainably sourced materials can look and feel beautiful, and have their story evolve.
Recently moving from Ontario to Nova Scotia, Canada with his wife Jody, they are renovating a derelict early 1900’s feedstore to become their home and studios.
