This vessel is one of a series of four in the USQ Art Collection, which demonstrates Daly’s international acclaim for rich glazes and lustre.

Art critic Peter Haynes described his work as a ‘sophisticated essay in the ceramic medium, striking for the balanced harmony of elements and precise geometries of from.

His work stands as a beautiful duality between mastery of form and chaos colour.
