Daniel Dricken grew up long ago in the early 1980s in the far away land of West Bend, Wisconsin. Much of his youth was spent turning card board boxes into rocket ships and castles, making forts, and disspearing into the nearby forests for afternoons on end. Later, in an attempt to eventualy become an adult, Daniel attended UW Milwaukee. There, the cardboard applicance boxes, blankets, and carefully stacked couch cushions of the past were replaced with blast furnaces, kilns, and welders. Evetualy, Dan earned a bacholors of fine arts in sculpture and ceramics without causeing very much irreparable structural damage to the UW campus. Today, Dan is the owner of a modest home improvement business in Milwaukee, WI. In his spare time he wonders the Midwest and beyond, playing with fire with his friends, and occasionally convinces passers to give him money for the trinkets he creates. Also, occasionally, he still makes forts.
