Daniel Miller: Metalsmith

Welcome to Daniel Miller's web site.

Daniel is a blacksmith/metal sculptor who makes his living practicing an ancient craft, and like many people who work with there hands to create objects, he is not comfortable in the world of computers and electronics. This site has been created and is maintained by the friends who know and love him and are willing to act as his liaison to this world.

Daniel hates resumes and believes the work should simply speak for itself, but as he is not creating this site - Daniel grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and has been working in the world of metal for more than thirty years. He is one of the most respected members of his craft, and well known among the smithing community. His work has appeared at the American Craft Museum in NY, and in gallery exhibitions around the world. He is one of only a handful of Americans to be featured in "Hephaestus" the annual German publication which celebrates the work of the world's finest practicing blacksmiths. Daniel's work has also been featured on countless covers of "The Anvil's Ring" the official publication of the Artist Blacksmiths Association of North America.

Daniel does not maintain a gallery and this site does not represent a catalogue from which to place orders. All of Daniel's work is commissioned and one of a kind. His favorite medium is wrought iron, but he also works in mild steel, brass, copper, silver, and other materials as the work requires. He operates a one man shop, occasionally working with his friend and fellow Smith, Andy Brittain. He considers his most consequential work to be "functional art" or "functional sculpture." His tables, lamps, railings, fireplace tools are often infused with meaning and symbolism.

The best way to contact Daniel is by phone; 828-400-6626. You can also email him at millermetalsmith@gmail.com.
