New to the Workshop! Sean O’Connell earned his MFA from RIT’s School of American Crafts in 2009, and his BFA from Kansas City Art Institute in 2001. He has taught ceramics classes for a number of years in Chicago and surrounding suburbs, led workshops, exhibited nationally, and been an active participant in the ceramic community for nearly a decade.

Alongside his ceramic education and practice, Sean has a vested interest in ceramic art history, the history of the decorative arts and craft theory. His own studio work is often influenced by his ceramic history research.
