Melbourne Design Fair 2023 - Artist Feature: Dan Watson
Self-taught First Nations knifemaker Dan Watson creates beautiful, hand-crafted artefacts, for a sustainable future. His hand forged knives and homewares are created in his home studio in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Each one unique, their beautiful patina and hand finished handles are sustainably crafted from local or reclaimed timbers. His rustic aesthetic is influenced by his studies in Sociology, Film and personal experiences building dry-stone walls as a track worker in Tasmania and with the indigenous community of Millingimbi Island.
