About David Ivens
A new immigrant to the Ottawa Valley, I ran a restoration and fabrication company for 40 years creating, reproducing and restoring light fixtures. I set up everything from the foundry to the finishing shop. The last 10 years of my working career I also taught Metal Forming in the Jewellery Program of Community Colleges. I enjoy teaching immensely. The opportunity to share knowledge and pass on techniques that may soon be forgotten, gives me great pleasure. I have won numerous awards for my work, displayed internationally, and have pieces in public and personal collections.
