Second generation metal smith in the Macchiarini family
Daniel himself had spent much of his life creating sculptures and jewelry, and making artwork. Growing up in the 1950's and 60's Peter taught Daniel the metalwork craft for jewelry and sculpture, as well as form and design concepts to aid in the development of Daniel's own artistic expression. In the early nineties, Daniel began to work side by side with Peter to help with his Father's failing health and the business side of the shop.
By the time Peter died in 2001, Daniel was a working artist creating and selling his own work, and carried on the Macchiarini Creative Design Studio. Daniel Macchiarini's work has been enjoyed and celebrated throughout the Bay Area as an important metal artist.
Daniel teaches the Casting Class on Wednesdays from 6-9pm
