Daniel Calderwood is a dynamic artist, having high expectations of himself and of his work, he takes pride in creating unique and original pieces. As a fast and predominantly kinaesthetic learner, Daniel always enjoys a new challenge or adventure, considering himself an experimentalist (will try most things just to see what happens) and always looking for new creative outlets in which to nurture this trait. As long as he is making inspiring objects with his hands, he is pretty content. Daniel aspires to refine his skills primarily as a metals practitioner, but looks to the future to one day transfer these skills and processes into studio glasswork.

“My life, and subsequently my work, is heavily influenced by the instinctive and the coincidental. I am inspired by the intricacy of existence as a whole and how it all is reflected in human experience. I aim to reconnect with the primitive subconscious and form a dialogue concerned with the way that life influences the creative process and how a materials innate properties and nuances can express narrative and emotion. My current concern is what constitutes identity; the masks of social interactionism, revelation and the beauty beneath.

I work in the same mode as organic development, governed by basic rules to retain order but driven by instinct, intuition and improvisation. Process led, my materials are never forced, but are nurtured into their ideal forms. I find metals to be best suited to this, they are a group of materials that have incredible dualities; delicacy and malleability, but, at the same time, strength and endurance.

Merging natural intuition and technical ability, pieces are developed through repetition; physical form through evolution, as if the work itself were a species.”
