2008 graduate Casey Whittier is joining us again this year – this time, as a full time instructor for the sophomores. The image above is from her most recent solo show, titled Above Ground, Under Foot at Cottey College in Nevada, Missouri. Casey is also teaching a new elective class, “Ceramic Skin: The Human Form in Clay,” in which students will be thinking about the human figure and it’s representation throughout history.
In George’s tradition, the sophomores are starting their semester sculpting self portrait busts. Here are some images of the works that students are making with Casey so far.
