Brian Ferrell is a creator of sculpturally functional livingware, originally from Greensburg Pennsylvania. In addition to teaching at Seton Hill University, Brian is also on the Board of Directors for the Society of North American Goldsmiths.

All of his pieces begin with a common object, slightly abstract these everyday items, giving them the dual purpose of sculpture and function.
