The Sculptural Excellence of Dan Skinner...

Dan Skinner SculptorSimilar to ancient man, Dan Skinner slowly, meticulously, hand builds pinch pots from a single lump of clay. Pinching, pressing and stretching, hour after hour, until the clay evolves and takes life. He creates exquisite art out of passion for clay, the primal medium, the connection to Mother Earth. large, aesthetic pots are masterfully sculpted into elegant works of art, each showing startling newness, melding a conscious rebirth of ancient techniques with bold, modern innovation.

Dan recalls his first sighting of a humpback whale ... from the jetty of the Ilikai Hotel in Waikiki, hawaii in 1969. "It was exciting, even from a distance. During seven years in alaska, he has hiked the cliffs of Cook Inlet's Turnagain Arm to watch numerous Beluga whales feast on local salmon. Orca whales frolicked off the bow of his boat while fishing in Prince William Sound. During summers in Southeastern Alaska, he viewed Bowheads, Greys,, Orcas, and Humpbacks.
