emerging artist: Casey Zablocki

Casey Zablocki was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula and is currently a ceramic artist residing in Denver, Colorado.  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.

“I believe in form and function, craft and industry, which all need to be considered to create a balance in beauty. Knowing beauty is just a perception it allows me to use clay as a natural vehicle to transport my ideas. My ideas are influenced by my past and my present surroundings. I find acceptance that each idea will not be successful and believe if I continue the process of creating, my perception of success will change. I find wood firing to be the most efficient artistic tool in finishing my work.”
