David A. Smith is a traditional sign-writer/designer specialising in high-quality ornamental hand-crafted reverse glass signs and decorative silvered and gilded mirrors. David recently produced a wonderful turn-of-the-century, trade-card styled album cover for popular American singer/songwriter John Mayer.
This film captures the ‘behind the scenes’ creation of the Born & Raised and “Queen of California” artwork, as well as 2 unique reverse glass panels, hand-crafted in England by David A. Smith. Pure beauty, I mean you have to admire this even if you don’t “get” art. This takes true talent and a shit ton of time. Glad to see people still do this sort of stuff.
David A. Smith you can make a B-Minus Blogs ornamental gilded mirror whenever you find the time.
Editors Note – It is 17 minutes long but definitely worth the watch when you have the time.
