About us

BLOTT WORKS is award-winning artist-engineer Dan Morrison who hand builds 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.
