Katie Ott

Katie Ott is a woodworker and sculptor who makes furniture that doesn’t work, tons of sawdust, and feminist rants at the drop of a hat. Her sculptural furniture challenges the purpose of furniture itself and forces the viewer to think twice about how we interact with objects and people. Katie earned her BFA in drawing and B.S.Ed in Art Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and is currently an MFA Candidate in Woodworking.

Katie will be participating in Sweetwater’s Corners of Thought exhibition March 29-April 28, 2018.
