brooke cassady - interdisciplinary artist
Brooke Cassady is an Assistant Professor of Art in 3D Design and Ceramics and the Director of the School of Design Galleries at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, LA. She also holds the Clarece Harp Lyles Endowed Professorship in Ceramic Arts.
She graduated from Boston University in 2003 with a BA in Art History and received her MFA in Ceramics from Louisiana State University in 2011. Her thesis work focused on community engagement and self-actualization through impromptu interactions with raw clay in public spaces.
She’s currently an interdisciplinary artist working predominantly with ceramics, fibers, metals and repurposed objects. She utilizes materials to achieve forms that feel bound yet expansive trying to capture the visceral experiences and emotions within the body. Her work references the interconnectedness of humans and all other beings, the collective consciousness and the natural world. Her work has been exhibited nationally in solo, invitational, and juried shows.
