Séamus Moran MRBS
Born in 1963 Séamus Moran grew up in the Midlands. He initially studied ceramics and glassmaking in Birmingham before working as a model/mouldmaker in the Potteries in Stoke on Trent. It was here that he learned about production and attention to detail. Since 1988 he has lived and worked in Cornwall. Seamus was recently elected as a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors.
“Like all artists, I have always enjoyed making things. It’s the idea of transferring something which was just a thought, into a tangible visual object which I find so addictive. Since I can remember I have painted/sculpted/assembled all manner of things from a variety of materials, gradually moving towards sculpture as my weapon of choice. Working in 3D produces objects; objects which can be viewed from different angles, seen in different lights and cast different shadows. They are tactile as well as visual, and have a real physical presence.” Gallery of images
