Sadly, Danny died in 2012. He was a much valued member of Cornwall Woodcarvers both for the high quality of his fine carvings and for his irrepressible sense of humour. He is sorely missed by those of us who were privileged to know him as a friend and colleague.


 l came to Cornwall some forty five years ago and for ten years worked as a pig buyer for a farmers pig marketing group. ln the mid seventies a change in career direction was called for and l went to work for the china clay industry now called Imerys where l became a shift captain running a production shift. l`d always been interested in wood and making things from wood and it was a short step when l retired some ten years ago to take up the creative hobby of wood carving learning from the St Austell college Adult Education evening class where nearly three years ago l took over as tutor.
