Sara Flynn


Born in Cork, Ireland in 1971, Sara Flynn trained in ceramic design at the Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork. Her work concentrates on the challenges of thrown forms, which are then altered and changed at varying stages of the drying process. Having begun her career producing small-scale functional pots, she now produces one-off vessels that are entirely sculptural in their intent. Shortlisted for the Loewe Craft Prize in its’ inaugural year, she served as a member of the Experts Panel for the Prize in 2018, 2019 and 2020. Sara Flynn’s work is held in many major collections including The Devonshire Collection at Chatsworth House, England; The Gardiner Museum, Toronto, Canada; The Art Institute of Chicago, USA, and the National Museum of Ireland.

Sara Flynn has also contributed in Making In /18.
