Dan Southern is a Southern California native that has been working with wood for over 40 years. In 2002 he entered his first woodworking competition winning "Best in Show"
By 2005 his work had gained recognition in both national and international exhibitions. These awards have led to publications and solo exhibitions.
I do not have a complex recipe attached to the work I do. My main focus is on form and surface. I try to use the purest possible curves along with simple uncluttered compositions that will reveal the true beauty that lay within the wood.
For me it's the wood itself that is the prized natural treasure.
