Welcome to "The Daniel Collection"

This site was created with the aims of showcasing and publicising some of the turning that has appealed to us in our time as collectors. We would hope that in doing so, we are also able to shine a light on this particular artform - which seems to be largely overlooked by galleries as a serious artistic medium (in the UK at least).

In response to a frequently asked question, we do not loan pieces out due to the high risk of damage but are more than happy to show people round the collection at a mutually convenient time. We are also happy to come and "talk" to clubs and other interested groups about collecting turned wood - please use the contact form on the site if you would like to discuss this further.

As at the time of writing there are around 80 pieces still requiring to be photographed and inserted into the database that drives this site. This can be a time-consuming undertaking so please bear with us whilst this is completed.
