5 – 26 August 2017
Emerge proudly debuts work from graduating students of CIT Crawford College of Art & Design, Coláiste Stiofáin Naofa and St John’s Central College as part of Cork Craft Month.
Each of the makers has taken their first steps toward professional practice moving outside of the college campus. Presenting works from the three college’s “Emerge” aims to give the city a snapshot of what up and coming contemporary Irish design and craft looks like.
An appreciation of raw materials and age old craft skills are blended with modern technology and production methods. We see design influences at play that come from a mass of in depth research. Clean forms often mask hours of planning, testing, and careful production required to complete these pieces.
