ARTIST PROFILE

Amanda Casey was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, and raised in Rusagonis, surrounded by the forests and rivers that inspire her art today. She took two years after graduating from the Ceramics program at NBCCD in 2015 to find a direction to work in. She decided to return to further her education in her practice. Currently, Casey is working on a collection of large altered forms. This fall she’ll be a part of an incubation program created by NBCCD to help the Alumni get on their feet and out in the world.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Fünem is an experimental project I’ve been working on over the course of the year. The word is Latin for rope or cord, which honestly encompasses the key element of design of my pots. The idea originated from a technique I learned 4 years ago and expanded on further to develop my own method. Every piece is wrapped in a nylon rope around a cylinder in a crisscross and bubbled out enough for the rope to bite into the surface.

Every vessel is as unique as the rocks in the river, not one looks a like, but they speak the same language.
