David Nash (born 1945 Esher, Surrey) is a sculptor who has been working with wood, trees and the natural environment for the past thirty-five years. His career has been an untiring exploration of the possibilities of form in wood and trees producing a significant body of work in Britain and all over the world.
His own experiences have led to a conviction of the value of interaction with the natural world and he would like to further stimulate learning through consideration of environment and natural processes. He is particularly interested in supporting teachers to use his sculptures as an inspiration for cross-curricular work. He has been committed to teaching since 1970 when he was a visiting lecturer at Maidstone College of Art and has continued to hold visiting lectureships and to lead art education projects based on his work in galleries and museums around the world.
