A husband and wife team (“DaNisha”) in a collaborative union between sculpture and painting. Bronze and ceramic figures sculpted by Dan support ceramic bowls painted and glazed by Nisha. Each bowl is a unique drawing and painting layered and blended in underglazes requiring multiple firings. Each sculpture, therefore, is unique, despite being limited editions.
Dan says: Nisha and I each create through a different medium; however the design is what unites us. It has been a slowdown but it is now more than ever that we understand the subtle, yet profoundly important principles of design. Principles such as shape, proportion, balance, repetition, harmony, unity, decoration and thematic consistency to name a few. The art of design embodies as many different principles as sculpture and drawing/painting. In fact, all are integral and necessitate a carefully considered orchestration. Herein lays the true collaboration of DaNisha.
