Ceramics

Sue Whitmore is an artist, designer, and educator working in the field of ceramics. Raised in Colorado, she attended Metro State University in Denver and received a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Washington in Seattle. Interested in the intersection of science and art, her work has explored the imagery of natural science and entomologic hybrids in abstract and realistic forms. Her experience in ceramics and sculpture and work as a science illustrator, a land surveyor for the U.S. Forest Service, and as an exhibition specialist for the California Academy of Sciences has helped form a unique line of inquiry into object and image making. Her current work explores the synthesis of digital and ceramic processes and the combination of post consumer paper products and organic materials with ceramic materials.
