Cori Crumrine’s ceramic work is fueled by her sweet tooth, curiosity for color, and environmental concerns. She utilizes abstraction to create small-scale confectionary sculptures that explore color and form. An avid drawer, the majority of her pieces begin as sketches before they're rendered in clay.
Cori (she/her) aspired to become a ceramics artist as a teenager, leading her to study at Bowling Green State University (BFA 2013) and the University of Montana (MFA 2018), where she recognized her desire to pursue teaching. Cori has continued her studies through assistantships and residencies at the Penland School of Craft, Das Keramikkünstlerhaus Neumünster, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, the New Harmony Clay Project, and Queen City Clay. She is currently a visiting instructor and resident artist at Kansas State University. Her go-to studio tools are an x-acto knife, metal rib, watercolor brushes, and mystery audiobooks.
