“I love useful, everyday objects, and enjoy transforming them into distinctive pieces with high design.”
Brian Ferrell channels his deep experience in multiple craft forms to create a wide range of home goods and furniture, including tableware, seating, and tables. Working skillfully in wood, metal, and clay, he offers a fresh take on the mid-century modern design aesthetic, combining conventional objects with an artful vision. An experimenter at heart, he draws inspiration from architecture, particularly bridge design. He plays with user expectations by incorporating atypical and highly detailed components. Brian is also a professor at Seton Hill University in Greensburg, PA, where he creates his work and shares his knowledge with students.
