Works in West Wales.
Daniel makes salt-glazed wood-fired ceramics – contemporary, functional, wheel-based forms to be used and enjoyed. He combines traditional and modern ways of working, firing in a 75 cubic foot catenary arched kiln to 1,300 degrees centigrade. These firings produce many original surfaces and colours. His aim is to create works which are individual and original in design and execution.
