In the exhibit Accessories, Casey Zablocki explores incorporating large-scale ceramic forms into everyday life. Whereas objects made from clay often serve a specific function, Casey takes the concept further in this exhibit in creating sculptures that resemble such objects as chairs and tables emerging from the rubble. These works reflect how Casey finds influence in his surroundings, natural and industrial alike. Our existence in the natural environment can create both distraction and beauty. He states "As an artist it is my responsibility to find inspiration from the world we live in today."
Casey Zablocki was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula, Michigan. He received his BFA from Finlandia University and studied ceramic design in Kuopio, Finland. He spent one year working and studying as an apprentice to Peter Callas and as a special student at Montana State. He has showed in both national and international exhibitions. Casey is currently finishing a two-year stint as the Woodfire Resident at the Clay Studio of Missoula.
Accessories will be on display at the Clay Studio of Missoula from September 4-25, with an opening on Friday, September 4 from 5:30-9pm.
