David Holgate - d. 30/06/14



David was a founder member of the NCCS and exhibited regularly with us. We have retained this page as a mark of respect and hope to be involved in an event to celebrate David's life and work at a future date.

David's work covered a wide field and included sculpture, carving and lettering in stone, slate, wood, metal and plastics. He also did signwriting, painting and gilding on some of his work. Anglia TV, British Telecom and the Historic Churches Trust were just a few of the names on an impressive list of commissioning companies and charities. For although much of David's work was spread throughout East Anglia in the form of carvings and incised lettering on plaques and headstones in small village churches, he was also regularly commissioned by architectural practices and private companies wishing to achieve a high standard of letter design and fabrication as part of their building projects.
