Susan Casey

Designer/Maker, Philadelphia, PA

Desarc is the studio of designer Susan Casey. A graduate of the Jewelry/Metals/CAD-CAM program at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, she has firm roots in high tech manufacturing followed up by years of experience in handwork as a production assistant in Philadelphia design and craft furniture studios.

Her aesthetic combines her passion for scientific discovery with primitive interpretations of complex concepts. From cave paintings to the latest satellite schematic abstract lines and shapes have been used to describe ideas and plans among people. She takes that visual language and uses its components as building blocks to create three dimensional objects associated with various technical concepts, but outside of rigorous scientific context.
