Sean Crawford
New Zealand Sculptor in Steel and Metal

Sean Crawford NZ contemporary sculptor

Sean Crawford lives on a two acre block on the edge of Carterton in the Waiarapa, New Zealand. From his purpose built studio/workshop Sean creates sculptural works under inspirational views of the Tararua ranges. Sean's creative development took him from the plumbing trade in the suburban New Zealand landscape to experiencing wide European vistas during his OE. This awakened his desire and flair for art and design. Returning home to New Zealand Sean put aside his trade and, at the age
of 30, he made the decision to pursue years of study, gaining a Bachelor of Design with Honours.
"I believe that the off-setting of old and new technology, processes and materials provide the challenge to extend boundaries - boundaries which
I will continue to explore in further exhibitions and commissioned works."

Sean employs distinctive materials such as galvanised or stanless steel, native timbers and copper resulting in a unique style.
Sean has partcipated in numerous group and solo exhibitions and his works are held in New Zealand and overseas collections.

"It is not the object that defines us - it merely implicates us."
