Harrison Warren (b.1994) is a sculptor currently living in West Wales. He takes his inspiration from science and nature, in particular; naturally occurring patterns and phenomena. A great appreciation for the outdoors and natural beauty drove him to abstract the world around him in a number of different materials, mostly in metal.Following on from his previous work into erosion, his current work focuses on capturing the grace of movement through a medium, natural or not. Having studied different fluid dynamics, Warren makes simplified forms based on the different materials involved.
While studying Sculpture at Carmarthen School of Art, in 2018, Harrison Warren learnt to be more experimental with work but also to be much more self-sufficient in terms of making. “If I didn’t have the right toolfor the job, I would simply make it. This sparked a great joy in just making work rather thanchasing the final outcome. My lecturer, Andy Griffiths, loved the camaraderie and show ofpouring molten iron so it was hard not to be swept up with the fun of casting using a miniblast furnace.” Warren’s keen interest in casting rarely finds its way into his work in an immediate way but the process that so fascinates him has created opportunities to work in communities in the UK and abroad, along with the chance to work with artists on big performances for the public, involving pouring molten iron in and onto things for the spectacle.
