Daryl, a resident of Saskatoon, has worked in many areas of craft throughout his career. His primary medium is forged metal, but he is comfortable working with any material that allows his ideas to come to fruition. He has always been interested in form and how it relates to its surroundings, inspired by nature and its inhabitants. Daryl’s work borrows from the past, but with a modern flair breaking down the lines to a suggestion of the idea.
Daryl is an active member of the Saskatchewan craft community. He is a founding member of the 330 Design Group in Saskatoon and a member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council and the Western Canadian Blacksmiths Guild. He has participated in the Emma International Collaborations since 1998. Recently he has been creating larger sculptural pieces and is thriving on the diversity that it brings to his practice. His work can be found in both private and public collections worldwide.
