While traveling west in 1995 the road ran out, the land became sea, and Darren found himself in the bay area. A graduate of Antonelli Art Institute Darren has continually sought out different mediums to create with. His passion of late has been wheel thrown ceramic work. The perfect piece in his eyes is a vessel that’s functional to a degree but more importantly, one that reminds us of the earth from which we came, and the struggle it took to get here. Through experimentation with glaze alterations, wood firings, high iron clay bodies and other playful ceramic tricks, a story develops told simply through the elements of earth, air, fire, and water.
