David Trubridge graduated from Newcastle University in Northern England in 1972 with a degree in Naval Architecture (boat design). He taught himself furniture making while working part-time as a forester on a private estate. He went on to develop his own designs which were exhibited around Britain. During this time he married Linda, a Fine Arts graduate, and they had two sons, Sam and Billy. In 1981 they sold everything they had, bought the yacht and set out on an open ended adventure around the > MORE world. David started to make furniture influenced by their Pacific travels. He later developed a series of works derived from the East Coast landscape and its fractured friable rocks. He also found inspiration from their much loved boat. In 2001, one of his designs was picked up for manufacture and this was the start of a whole new change for David. His role has developed from that of a local designer/maker to an internationally known designer running his own design and manufacturing business with sales all over the world. David does not design to fulfill a practical function. He designs to communicate, to tell a story, to relate what he finds in the mountains and wilderness and what it is to be human. As an artist he develops forms and a vocabulary from what he see and feels around him. Art, craft and design: all are equally important parts of the whole creative process. David is proud to be working with the Enviromark program to create environmentally sustainable pieces. Over recent years his designs have been featured countless times in publications around the world. David still has his studio in the garden of his home but also has a larger workshop nearby at Cicada, where much of his work is produced.^ LESS
