Artist: Cassandra Ott
Description of Buffalo: Ott chose to create a Gemini Buffalo, half dark and half light. Gemini's represent twins that are different in character. Ott seeks to show beauty on each side and the simple fact that together, they make one whole Buffalo. Both sides show facets of her practice, including the bright colors that Ott gravitates towards and her desire to highlight the joy in nature.
The buffalos are approximately 18" long and 12" high and made of terra cotta.
Artist Bio: An eternal optimist and quiet observer, artist Cassandra Ott grew up in a creative and entrepreneurial household surrounded by her mother's textile collection and father's architectural renderings. Her lighthearted and bright artistic explorations take shape across a variety of fine art media and surface pattern design.
Cassandra's love of puzzles, patterns, photographs and nature are evident in all facets of her work. While the range of imagery is wide, themes of beauty, memory and optimism are common threads. A designer by trade she runs a creative studio helping clients with broad range of print design services. Not too serious, but extremely driven, she approaches each project with a sense of wonder and possibility. Cassandra currently lives in beautiful Buffalo, NY with her husband, son and two cats.
