Sean James Harrington

I received a BFA in Sculpture from Rhode Island College in 1986 and an MFA in Sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1989 before returning to Rhode Island College to earn a MAT-C in 1991. I have been an art teacher since 1992 and currently teach Ceramics, Sculpture, and Digital Art at Bartlett High School in Webster, MA. My sculptures are created in a modular steel arch building using a century-old blacksmith forge and modern welding equipment.

Artist Statement
My sculptures are inspired by nature and myth. They are metaphors of the unknown depths of time and space. Their ambiguous biological forms explore the conflicts between spirit and reason. They express the fear and wonder of the unknown while embracing the myths and fantasy that seem to calm our worries and give us a sense of immortality.

Here are a few examples of his work.
