Caleb Buckler is a student at the University of Georgia in Athens, pursuing a BFA in graphic design. Caleb found his passion for design as a freshman in high school, inspired by the posters that lined his classroom and the expertise of his mentor, and teacher, Katie Byrd. As a college student, Buckler found his love for clay while under the instruction of Alex Kraft at the University of North Georgia in Dahlonega. In both ceramics and graphic design he aims to form deeper connections between his work and the viewer by interlacing personal stories and memories into his art.
Buckler was awarded second place in the SkillsUSA National Pin Design competition in 2018, Best Poster at National Association for Campus Activities South in 2019, and has been featured in several student galleries in both high school and college.
