BLOTT WORKS is award-winning artist-designer Dan Morrison who hand-makes his unique functional statement pieces in his workshop in the Pennine borderlands and sells them around the world. 

Dan likes architecture. And machines. He also likes birds, people and other natural forms. His past incarnations in theatre design, engineering, sound composition and funeral directing could seem disparate to others but they are very joined up in Dan’s mind.

His work draws on these things, not always intentionally, to produce items that have a strong sculptural, mechanical or architectural aesthetic, radiating personality and bringing a sense of ritual or play into everyday activities.

Sometimes whimsical. Never flimsical.

"We were delighted to select Dan Morrison's BLOTT WORKS for our Award at the GNCCF last autumn, his extraordinary limited edition, hand engineered, functional sculptures are fascinating, intriguing and very clever indeed! BLOTT WORKS is like nothing we've ever seen before"

Angie Boyer, Editor, craft&design magazine (April 2017)

We have a couple of ways to make life easier. Both available throughout the year:

Try before you buy

Our work is designed to be different and stand out from the crowd. This means it can be hard to imagine it settled into your environment at home. We are very confident that once you see how well it compliments its new surroundings you will want to keep it. For this reason we offer you the chance to live with a item for two weeks before committing to purchase. We just require a 10% deposit, refundable should you choose not to buy. We will take care of delivery and collection as required.

Spread your payments

Our work is not cheap and not everyone has the necessary available cash to pay for an item outright. To help with this we allow the full payment to be spread over 12 months. We simply ask for a 10% deposit when you order, a further 10% two weeks after you have taken delivery and then the remaining 80% spread over the following ten months in any way that suits you.

Alternatively, visit one of the galleries or exhibitions below and discuss your requirements there.
