Heidi began her training at Yeovil College on the Art and Design course, it giving her a good foundation of skills with different art mediums. When she left college she was employed at Dennis Chinaworks in Somerset, initially to glaze pots and then moving on to become a decorator. Heidi loved the creativity of decorating and over the years progressed to the position of principal decorator. She feels privileged to know that some of her finest pieces of decoration have sold for thousands of pounds at Bonhams Auction House. Whilst decorating was exciting and fulfilling, Heidi's real passion was for designing - she felt like she was bursting with design ideas so began to create her own ceramic artwork.
All pieces are Limited Edition, made, thrown, decorated by Heidi in Somerset.
Flight Of Freedom Charger Number 4 of 5
Inspiration; 'The Flight of Freedom design incorporates the influence of M.C. Escher. In this design I have created stylised birds breaking free from an interlinking geometric pattern.
Birds are often used to symbolise freedom and new beginnings and it was the sense of elation after breaking free and soaring high that I wanted to capture.
