Welcome Casey Gilman!
Casey Gilman, University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, BFA Graduate, 2021
The Doodle Academy is excited to introduce our new Clay teacher and studio manager Casey Gilman. She is a recent BFA graduate from USAO with an emphasis in ceramics. She graduated Summa Cum Laude and is part of the Hypatia Honor Soceity. We are so excited to have such a new experienced and passionate artist move to our Ponca City community.
Casey Gilmans Artist Statement:
Through slip casting and hand building techniques, I achieve unique forms. My concept of formal, non-functional shapes are combined with extensive research in glaze chemistry. My focus is on achieving mid-range crystalline glazes in a variety of colors, along with expanding my personal glaze palette. My primary focus is on glazes, making the unique ceramic forms I produce the canvas for my glaze application. The use of altered textures, edges and surface finishes in the clay body shows the individual facets of a glaze or layering of glaze. The surfaces I work upon exist as examples of my research, their final form whether functional or not is the accumulation of a thousand hours of effort.
