Wave-Inspired Glass Vases

Hand Built ceramic vases

Trivot captionHetizi specializes in high-fire hand-built ceramics, from teapots to sushi platters. Taking inspiration from the natural world around her home in Maryland, many of her pieces are created using actual leaves and flowers, which she rolls into moist slabs of clay. She forms these slabs into vases, bowls, ceramic boxes, candle holders, and other objects. After the bisque-firing, Heitzi uses natural stains to bring out the minute details of the leaves and flowers, and then glazes the pieces. She uses the same technique to create story-pieces (such as a couple walking through a forest, or a child digging at the beach) in which she makes ceramic stamps from photographic images of people.Trivot caption She presses these stamps into the moist clay along with leaves, branches, shells, and other found objects to create the scene, which is then formed into a finished ceramic piece.

Heitzi has branched out into a second style of surface decoration in recent years, one which incorporates brighter colors combined with carved flowing shapes. All of her work is dishwasher and microwave safe, and the glazes are all lead-free and safe to use with food.
