Dave has worked is the architectural metalwork field for more than 30 years, with a focus on stainless steel and glass.

A keen interest in casting, laser cutting, bending and forming of metals gives Dave a wealth of knowledge which has been successfully used in many notable high-end construction projects across South Africa.

Dave started Freerangeboy in 1997 to focus on artistic expression and diversification but is still actively involved in the construction industry as an architectural consultant specializing in aluminium, stainless steel and glass architectural metalwork design.

"My passion for many years has been the upcycling, restoring and repurposing of a wide range of items that would in all likelihood be scrapped or discarded.


I have always felt and connected with the history of items, be it a furniture piece, vintage automotive part or light fitting.


I feel that every piece has heard a million stories and for me, there is massive value in preserving or repurposing an item to encapsulate a piece of their story.


My recent exposure to e-waste has been an amazing eye opener for me, not only for the amazing treasures in the form of potential art pieces, but also the awareness around the global issue of e-waste, responsible collection and recycling and the sheer volumes the human race is burdening the already severely damaged planet with. I sincerely hope that my pieces evoke some emotion from the viewer and that they take away an awareness around their own individual e-waste disposal routines."
