Originally from San Francisco Dan sailed to New Zealand where he fell in love with the pounamu and stayed.
His work combines silver-smithing techniques with stone carving and always the natural quality of the stone is foremost in his designs.
Dan believes a plain bracelet can be treasured for it's simplicity, a tangled wire ring for it's complexity and that light coming through a piece of pounamu shows us the inner essence of the stone.
