Daniel Reynolds

(1961-)
Daniel Reynolds is a sculptor and ceramicist, creating abstract kinetic sculptures, lighting, and large ceramic vessels.


Daniel's ceramic and glass kinetic sculptures are influenced by organic design and are deep rooted in his family background. Half Venezuelan, Daniel is influenced by the great mid-century architecture of Venezuela. The famous Aula Magna in Ciudad is one of the modern jewels of Caracas, inspired by Bauhaus equipped with acoustic 'Clouds' by Alexander Calder exploring movement, rhythm and nature. His ceramic elements reflect the geometric mid-century designs prevalent in the concrete Venezuelan architecture, and like Calder, the relationship between the components is crucial in achieving balance, harmony and beauty.


Daniel Reynolds' work was part of the 'New Territories, Laboratories for Design, Craft and Art in Latin America' an exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York in 2014 which then travelled to Albuquerque Museum, in New Mexico in January 2016 and the Museo Amparo, in Mexico in June 2016.


Daniel's recent commissions include a collection of porcelain vessels for Four Seasons 'Anahita' Resort in the Mauritius, Geometric Wall Plaques for the Royal Palace Complex - Bahrain, an Installation of 'Organica' Sculpture for the Crosby Street Hotel, New York, Large hand built Pots for the Dorset Square Hotel, London and three Abstract Mobile Sculptures for the Ham Yard Hotel, London.


Daniel's work was featured in the FT How to Spend It magazine by journalist Emma Crichton-Miller as part of a detailed feature on artists inspired by their travels.


His work appears in many collections including: Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection, New York, Colección Banco Mercantil, Caracas, Venezuela, Jorge F. Rivas Pérez Collection, New York, Christian Vinck H, Santiago, Chile, James Nesbitt, London and Sir Ian McKellen, London


Daniel graduated with a BA Hons in Painting and Sculpture from Brighton Polytechnic, preceded by a BA Hons in 3D Design from Middlesex.
