Daniel Lee Pollock
I was born and raised in Southern California and have spent the past 31 years living on a fifteen-acre ranch located in the High Desert. Which sits at the foothills of the San Bernardino National Forest.
I am a woodsman turned artist. My first love has always been the forest and its tranquility, which inspires my art. I use woods such as White Fir, Giant Juniper, Cottonwood and different types of pine as my medium of choice.
When creating a sculpture, it is very important to me to always find sources for my wood that will not require a living tree to be cut down. As I sand and smooth I seek to reveal each piece own gentle lines from its organic flowing movement found in nature. Each piece is a one of a kind
My sculptures are sometimes for the sake of art and sometimes function, often both. In any case, every sculpture has its own charm and appeal. Each sculpture adds a special serenity to any environment.
