Heather was born in upstate New York and has since lived in various parts of the southeast and midwest. In 2012 she received her BFA from East Tennessee State University and later worked as a Resident Artist at Odyssey Clayworks in Asheville, NC. She is currently traveling throughout the United States with her mobile pottery studio and making pots in nature. I'm interested in making pottery because it is an ancient art form that connects function and beauty. Creating work that people use daily is of great importance to me because it encourages you to slow down and appreciate the subtleties of a handmade object.
