He has work in private and public collections across the world who recognize his passion for releasing from stone the innate truth of the origins of the universe and forming it into new truths. Because of pressure of demand he has had to cast some pieces in bronze of which this is a fine example.

Dannys passion for stone and sculpture in stone is rooted in antiquity. Locked into stone are traces of the origins of the universe and life itself. Tapping into stone, sculptors through the ages have sought to add to the history of that material rendering its “innate truth” and forming from it new truths.

Danny is such a sculptor.

His subject matter is classical and personal in religious subjects that resonate with the Gothic, he joins hands with mason carvers of Canterbury and Chartres.

His intimate sculptures, feel for touch, softness and love, reflecting links to Gill, Epstein and Moore, his progenitors.
