Fine Art Metal Sculpture by Dan Daugherty

Welcome to my Fine Art gallery.  The Inspiration for my Self Illuminated and Kinetic Sculptures comes from my love for light, Color and Movement.  Sometimes this can be as complex as a steel campfire that looks real, a realistic lightning sculpture with lighting effects, or as simple as a small campfire candle sculpture.  All of my Sculptures are created from Recycled Steel and pre-used materials.  From broken washing machines to old Car parts, Anything is possible when you put a lifetime of mechanical and creative experience to work.  

 What's Up??


     Last time I updated my website, I was working on a Steampunk Airship for a steampunk exhibit at Gallery 194. Well, We wanted to make the parade and we did just that.  With Jim Alt at the controls, We received an Honorable mention  for our efforts. I am currently getting it ready for the Art on Nepessing Festival which will be held on Nepessing St in downtown Lapeer MI. If your in town, be sure to stop by on Friday and Saturday June 2nd and 3rd.  I will be in the Lapeer Artist association booth this year.

 One way to stay tuned in is to follow my facebook page, Steelstuff Sculptures.  It seems to be a lot easier to post images there and a lot faster.

Don't forget, If you would like to contact me with any questions about my creations or anything else for that matter, Just click on the "Contact Me" Link above and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Campfire Candle Holders

 If you are interested in Purchasing a small Campfire Candle holder or a larger 4 inch Citronella Candle to ward off the Bugs, contact me and I will be happy to help.  

The 4 inch candles are poured with the color and scent of your choice.  Citronella Candles are poured with actual Citronella Essential oils, not just a scent and should not be used indoors.
