Luce Artist Biography

Dan Kvitka studied industrial design at the Arts Center in Pasadena, California. He spent several years making knives, grinding blades, and carving exotic wood into handles. His turned sculptures begin with a piece of wood that can weigh up to six thousand pounds. After this is cut, turned and carved, Kvitka will spend weeks oiling and waxing the vessel to achieve a gleaming finish.
