TOUR CALIFORNIA’S BEST VIEWS WITH CERAMICIST DANIEL DOORECK
From turning pottery to riding out to the best biking spots and bodegas in LA, spinning wheels are key features throughout Daniel Dooreck’s day.
Daniel has only recently outgrown the single-car-garage where he launched his pottery business, Danny D’s Mudshop.
Demand for his hand-thrown and hand-painted pieces, inspired by tattoo flash sheets and vintage American West artworks, is huge: he’s gone global in a short space of time, with everyone from London’s famous Goodhood and Earl Of East lifestyle stores to Taiwan’s super cool Zombie Shop all wanting his wares on their shelves.
His Brompton is not only helping him to check out his new work environment and manage his busier workload; it’s enabling him to make the most of his well-earned weekend adventures, too.
“The BG is very capable, manoeuvrable, and functional,” he says. “It’s a great fit for getting around town; I’ve been using the front bag to transport small ceramics and stock up on supplies. But it also really works for my travel style, too. I go on camping trips a lot and its foldability makes it easy to store away in my truck or tent, where every inch counts.”
Ultimately, as a man whose day revolves around spinning circles, who better to pass judgement on one of Brompton’s most defining features?
“The speed that the Brompton BG can generate on its small wheels really surprises me,” says Daniel. “My friends really love it. Especially my studio assistant. He’s a big biker, and admires the style and function.”
