Sinéad works in thrown and sculptural ceramics in West Cork. She works with an unpredictable firing technique called
Saggar firing, which uses fumes to colour the work rather than glazes. She is interested in the exploration of line and colour and how they interact together creating movement and direction. The saggar process burns combustibles in a container where the fumes then colour the porous surface of each piece. It is an unpredictable process, but gives ranges of colours from pastel grey blues to vivid shades of pink and orange.
Sinéad has studied at the Crawford College of Art & Design, Cork and with the Craft Council of Ireland. She was selected as the joint winner of the Cork Arts Society/ Lavit Gallery Student of the Year in 2011. She has won awards in 2012 and 2013, and exhibits in Ireland and internationally.
