Designer/Maker: Stephen Daly – Studied at San Jose State and created a body of work in sculpture at the Siren Works while an undergraduate that led to a scholarship to Cranbrook where he became Julius Schmidt’s foundry assistant and received an MFA in 1967. By the early 1970s, Daly had established foundries while teaching at the University of Minnesota and Humboldt State College, taught at the influential Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina and emerged as a powerful American sculptor. During this period his work was exhibited in California Design Nine and Eleven and Creative Casting at Museum West, toured with Objects:USA, and Daly subsequently received the Prix De Rome. The sculptor went on to a long career in academia, has exhibited and won awards internationally and has work in numerous museum collections.
