"Abstract ceramic sculpture is what is most interesting to me right now. I will continue to build large pots and other vessels but would like to explore this further. The unknown element of it excites me."
Daniel Reynolds is a sculptor and ceramicist, creating abstract mobiles, lighting, and large ceramic vessels. His work reflects the salient movements of the 20th Century, paying homage to British artists such as Victor Pasmore, Patrick Heron and William Scott. In contrast, his ceramic technique draws a direct line to the ancients, resulting in ample forms, enhanced through the use of simple colours and patterning. Daniel's work has recently been exhibited at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York.
The Story Behind
Working primarily with hand building and casting methods, Daniel Reynolds incorporates porcelain, stoneware, and glass shapes as well as organic materials such as dried gourd to produce juxtapositions in texture and opacity.
