Meet Daniel Patrick Murphy, Artist and Sculptor of Faces

Daniel Patrick Murphy with his Fisherman sculpture

Welcome to my site, ExpressionsByMurf.com! I am Daniel Patrick Murphy aka “Murf.” Since I was 13 the human face has been a world of intrigue to me. I am fascinated by human emotions and how we can express ourselves without words by our facial expressions; hence I named my business “Expressions By Murf.”

I must express that which I see and dream and feel…. My website Poem tells why I do what I do. (Read the Poem here.)

Many of my subjects are drawn from Nature, the human face being my primary subject. I enjoy making decorative vases which have also been sold as Urns. Be sure to view my online Galleries and also below on this page to see more examples of my work.

You will notice that my work looks like wood. I used to buy burls but discovered that I can simulate burls by using many colors of Stoneware with airbrushing after firing to high temperatures. My work is not poured in a mold but is done by hand by a tedious method called “The Press Mold Method.” Every piece I finish I sign and number in a limited edition so that the collectors may know they definitely have a piece of art executed by me the sculptor artist.

Lastly, I accept commission jobs and would be happy to sculpt your loved one. In the meantime, I continue to create the art that I hope will inspire….

Thank you for stopping by! Please visit again soon.

With warm regards,
Daniel Patrick Murphy aka “Murf”
