David attained his masters of Fine Art Degree from Kent State . Over the years, David has taught and lectured at several prominent schools including Kent State, University of Minnesota, university of Massachusetts, the Appalachian Center for Crafts and Pilchuck School of Glass in Washington. David Lappla's latest series Fish Vessel, are fun large scale vessels which are adorned by tropical, vibrantly colored fish that swim in and out through the surface of the vessels. David pushes this theme even further by adding dimensional green strips of glass resembling kelp to the bottom of the vessels.
