ABOUT


Cecilia Moore is an artist maker based in Dublin, Irleand.  She holds a Masters and a First Class Honours Degree in Metal Design from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. 

Previously she graduated in silversmithing from Birmingham School of Jewellery which is the grounding for all her work. She went on to study dinandarie in Paris where her work focussed on form and went on to study sculpture at the Firestation Studios in Dublin. 

Her current work combines all these elements and uses “raising“ an ancient silversmithing hammering technique to form sculptural pieces in silver and copper based metals.

Her designs use anthropomorphism to find a playfulness and individual character in each piece,  adding to this by her use of colour by  adapting traditional patination methods.

Her work has been selected for numerous National and International exhibitions. She has completed several public art commissions.

She has been selected for Design and Crafts Council of Ireland's "Critical Selection" for 2019

and previously 2017-2018. She has won several awards in 2018 she won the Golden Fleece Award a major national prize for visual artists in Ireland, in 2016 she won the Royal Dublin Society Award for Silversmithing and Metalwork; and a Thomas Dammann jnr. Memorial Trust Award for travel and research.
