Sustainability is at the heart of all Danielle’s designs, inspired by mid-century modern design, clean lines and geometric forms, with the aim of showcasing raw materials through the traditional craft process of woodturning. Her keen love for woodland walks, has greatly inspired her connection with the natural elements. Inspired by the primitive connections and relationship of material and process, striving to create balance and harmony between material qualities and their aesthetic values.
