Heather started her artistic career working with Glass Blower Adi Fredman at Gold Reef City, Johannesburg. Here she gained invaluable insight into small scale production and the general running of a small business. In 1998 she graduated with a Bachelor of Technology Degree in Ceramic Design from the Witwatersrand Technikon (now University of Johannesburg). During this period she did an internship at Anthony Shapiro’s ceramic studio. Following her studies she had the opportunity to work in a ceramic studio in Wales, United Kingdom exposing her to the inner workings of a successful pottery studio and gaining practical studio pottery experience. Heather’s focus is hand thrown ceramics. This work is delicately and skillfully thrown on the wheel, using white stoneware clay.
