Cori Crumrine’s ceramic work is fueled by her sweet tooth, curiosity for color, and environmental concerns. Her small-scale confectionary forms explore the attractive and artificial qualities of food and how it engages the five senses. She is actively working to adopt a sustainable approach to making, aiming to repurpose plastic materials into her work.
Cori graduated with a BFA from Bowling Green State University (2013) and a post-baccalaureate at the University of Colorado Boulder (2014) before earning her MFA from the University of Montana (2018), where she recognized her desire to pursue teaching. Cori has been a resident artist at the Künstlerhaus Stadttöpferei Neumünster and the New Harmony Clay Project - she is currently a resident artist and instructor at Queen City Clay. Her go-to studio tools are an x-acto knife, metal rib, & watercolor brushes.
