Daniel Cutrone

Daniel Cutrone is a maker who is interested in how the worlds of art, craft, and design overlap.  His current work combines contemporary 3D technologies with traditional glass and art making methods.  He explores meaning by provoking a state of inquiry.  It’s all about the “what ifs?”  The work here investigates the relation between the natural world and a digitally designed one and between the hand made and the manufactured.  There is a deliberate effort to avoid any notion of certainty and to engender a state of wonder and discovery in the viewer.
