From the Dann Web
I make things out of many different materials, which doesn’t make me particularly unusual. What does make me unusual is that I have chosen to carve some of them. A method that virtually none of my contemporary colleagues seem to share. The result is that I am asked to explain the carving aspect of my work more often than almost anything else. And the funny thing is that the more I’m asked about it, the lousier I am at coming up with an answer. Not that I haven’t thought about it. Quite the opposite. I’ve thought on it so much that the answer just keeps getting longer and more complicated. So long and unwieldy at this point that my answer goes mostly unsaid.
