Heidi fell in love with clay at 19. She took classes in raku, salt glaze firing, and kiln building, glaze formulation, hand building, and throwing… and never looked back. Clay has been a north star for her throughout her life, bringing sacrifice, challenge and peace. Botanical references and underwater sea forms all give her inspiration. Drawing on the clay, and glazing all aspects give her ideas and momentum. After teaching at the University of Idaho where she got her MFA degree, and taught pottery, then moved to the Pacific Northwest, continuing to evolveand expressing.
