Sculpture Description

David Maguire has lived, studied and worked in the North East for 18 years. He completed a BA and MA in Glass and Ceramics at the University of Sunderland, but his interests have recently shifted more towards design and graphics. David has a passion for art education and engagement and enjoys working with a wide range of ages and diverse audiences. ‘Silly the El-laugh-ant’ is inspired by the simple pleasure of a silly joke. The artist hopes you’ll laugh at the good ones and groan at the bad ones,but either way, that your day will be a little brighter for reading them!
