“Having journeyed to the Far East and Asia over 20 times in the past 20 years, I’ve been intrigued and inspired by the ingenuity, craftsmanship, balance and human spirit that have gone into the making of those works I have seen and collected.”
The David Alan Collection evolved from blending the great passions of David’s life: his love of art, design, furniture and a long-standing appreciation for third world craft and artistry. From villages in Java, other islands of Indonesia, the Indian subcontinent and elsewhere, he has personally selected each piece in the collection for its beauty, harmony, integrity and soul. The David Alan Collection was the next logical step for the man who has a degree in art, owned a high-end wood business – Cut & Dried Hardwood- for nearly two decades and was once owner of Trios art gallery, which received much acclaim and brought numerous high profile artists to the small town of Solana Beach.
