Biography

Casey Whittier received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and MFA from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
She is interested in the metaphorical and philosophical power of visual art and the ways in which the ceramic material creates direct connections between the geology of the earth, basic human needs, and complex metaphysical desires. Repetitive processes and systems of reliance are often used as metaphors for interconnectedness.
Whittier teaches ceramics and social practice at the Kansas City Art Institute and works from her home studio. Whittier works with The Land Institute through their Ecosphere Studies Program cohort and as a participant in their Silphium Civic Science Community, where research into new perennial and sustainable food and oil seed production is ongoing.
Whittier was named a 2020 Emerging Artist by Ceramics Monthly Magazine. She serves as Vice President for Artaxis.org. and more of her work can be found at www.caseywhittier.com and www.palmpetals.com.
