As the world moved into a new millennium, the pattern of Davids work flows had become established. He continued to create his vibrant domestic ware which he produced in large quantities to provide a steady, though never exceptional, income. Although the domestic ware was David’s main output, by 2001 his creative curiosity was also taking him in a very different direction with his much more reflective, inward-looking, figurative pieces. Many questions about David’s art centred around his figurative work and in particular, what inspired it and what was he saying through it?

Some years later, with this figurative work well developed and a regular part of his output, David said this of it . . .

“They are half told stories – incomplete images – stimulation for our memories – each one of us bringing different experiences to interpret what we see within our European culture” DAVID WHITE
“The tribal figures, I was fascinated by them, how he’d collect moulds. I remember heads moulded from Action Man would appear on all sorts of things! JAN BURGESS
