Amie McNeel’s art has been inspired by formal symmetries found in natural systems. She specializes in combing metal, clay, wood, and glass where methods of carving, casting and fabricating are integrated. Her sculptural forms are influenced by the designs of scientific devices for collection and observation. Ultimately, her goal is to synthesize simple, refined sculpture that reveal layers of meaning, relevancy, and complexity surrounding human impact on the physical and natural world.
Amie McNeel received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and her MFA from the University of California at Berkeley. She has taught sculpture nationally and is currently teaching sculpture within the 3D Forum Studio Program at the University of Washington in Seattle. She has been an artist in residence at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, WI, The Studio at The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, New York, the Pilchuck Glass School and the Museum of Glass Tacoma.
