Casey Whittier received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and MFA from the University of Colorado Boulder. Her work investigates the fine line between the need to preserve and a desire to re-imagine, re-configure and re-contextualize the world around her.
Utilizing a variety of forming methods and clay bodies, Whittier recreates elements from nature, unites the landscapes of her reality with the landscapes of daydreams, exploits the visceral qualities of clay, and ponders the power of shared experience.
Through shifts in material, Whittier makes space for metaphorical possibilities to rise to the surface. An exploration of touch and intuitive making is deeply embedded in her studio practice and community-based projects.
