Cora Cummins

Cora is a graduate of Crawford College of Art and Design and DCCOI Pottery Skills course. After college, she began working as a production potter, before taking up the position of Ceramics tutor at Dungarvan College. For the past 19 years, Cora loved every minute of that role , nurturing students’ creative sides and watching students grow and excel.

After facing a devastating loss, Cora found her way back to clay as a means of healing and returning to her childhood aspirations. The slow and meditative process of forming her work ensures that she focuses on creating quality, individually made, carved, painted works. No two pieces that Cora makes will ever be the same and she never rushes what she does.

In 2023, Cora won the prestigious Overall Emerging Maker award from the Design & Craft Council Ireland.
