Sydnie is an educator and ceramic artist living on the unceded territory of the T'Sou-ke and Scian'ew Nations in Sooke, B.C. She obtained a Bachelor of Education at the University of Victoria with a focus on ceramics and geography, and a certificate of Fine Arts at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Surrey, B.C. There, she discovered the beauty of plant cells under a microscope. She began to meld her passion for ceramics with science by carving the cellular structure of plants into clay. Carved and stamped with botanical and cellular imagery, her work is tactile and evokes a sensation of being unearthed.
