Joseph Harrington

Joseph Harrington (b.1979) is a sculptor working in cast glass. He graduated with an MA in Ceramics and Glass from the Royal College of Art in 2006. He won ‘Best in Show’ at the 2017 British Glass Biennale, a gold medal at the Bavarian State Prize 2018 and has work in the V&A permanent collection and Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, Virginia. Joseph has exhibited both nationally and internationally including a 2013 solo exhibition 'Landscape Portraits' at Bullseye gallery, Portland USA and has exhibited frequently at ‘Collect’ art fair at the Saatchi Gallery, London. I also offer a mould making, casting and finishing service for those who want ideas in glass realised.

‘I interpret landscapes through exploration of material. I focus on rugged coastlines, looking at erosion as a spectacle of discovery and generation of form, revealing a sense of the history and movement of a place. The work is produced using my ‘Lost Ice Process.’ I use salt to sculpt a block of ice as a one-off ephemeral model to take a direct cast from. The textures this provides and the transient nature of the creative process reflects the erosion and sense of time I want to represent in the landscape. There is a roughness from the initial cast that is ground polished and refined to its final finish, revealing the internal structures of the glass and creating facets and flat planes to redefine the essence of the made against the organic surface.’
