description: 
Seth Rainville is a professional potter from Dartmouth, Massachusetts. He has shown in major exhibitions and galleries across the country, and his work can also be found in major collections and museums across the globe. Seth has an extensive background in education as well, having developed the 'Phoenix Center for the Arts' Ceramics Program and has also conducted over 30 workshops at Colleges, Universities, Art Centers, and Artists Studios reaching as far away as Seward, Alaska. Seth is known for his Narrative Porcelain Vessels called "Ink-ware" and can be found currently at the 'Ferrin Gallery' in Pittsfield Massachusetts and at 'Santa Fe Clay' in Santa Fe New Mexico. SETH RAINVILLE of New Bedford, MA is one of our emerging talents. "Inkware", his term for narrative style painting on woodfired porcelain, provides a perfect format for this born storyteller. His current series focuses on tales of the sea and the whaling industry. A graduate of UMASS Dartmouth, he was a winter resident artist at Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts 2006-7 followed by a year in Chris Gustin's apprenticeship program. These new pieces follow his "sell out" introductcion at SOFA Chicago in The Illusculptors.
