Iris Casey is an artist who primarily uses various techniques with wrapping wire to create her art.
Iris had taken a variety of sculpting courses over the years, but she learned how to work with wire from artist/sculptor Chuck O’Neil.
Iris can often be found scouring junkyards and antique markets looking for pieces that speak to her.
One of her wire sculptures that holds fond memories for Iris is now in the home of a collector. This piece was created as part of a program matching artists in Prince Edward County with authors in England. Iris got matched up with a gentleman who wrote a poem about her raptor.
Iris’ other artistic medium of choice is mosaic. Iris’ mosaic pieces can be flat, but often are three-dimensional.
Iris’ ultimate goal is to get a response from people when they look at her work, whether it evokes a memory, a smile or a laugh. Her pieces can be found by chance at her Stonedragon Studio in Carrying Place, at Arts on Main Gallery in Picton, or at Gallery 121 in downtown Belleville.
