Daniel produces a range of ceramic work which has brought him international acclaim. Some pieces are hand-built – these are coiled, more traditional pots made on a non-mechanised turn-table. Then there are the pieces that are made using handmade moulds often in porcelain – melons, cabbages, electric kettles, hot water bottles, cocoa pods, gourds etc.
Over the last 5 or 6 years Daniel has been making sculptures. His Grid Abstractions are made in clay, joined together to make 3D grids climbing into space. His mobile sculptures use a combination of ceramics and glass. He was first commissioned by Firmdale Hotels to make these mobiles, which are now hanging in the Ham Yard Hotel in town, just behind Shaftesbury Avenue in London. The glass elements in the mobiles are made by, professional glassmaker Roberta De Caro.
Daniel has had number of solo shows and is an internationally acclaimed ceramicist and sculptor, having shown his work in the US, Spain, Venezuela, Sweden and the UK.
In 2014 Daniel’s work was exhibited in the Museum of Arts and Design in New York as part of an exhibition called ‘New Territories: Laboratories for Design, Craft and Art in Latin America’. The exhibition is about the influence of contemporary Latin Americans in the arts. It’s travelling to Albuquerque and then going to Puebla in Mexico. They are showing Daniel’s Hot Water Bottle, a Milk Carton and Stacking Picnic Plates, all in cast porcelain.
