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.
