Heather Dickey is a Ceramic maker and Designer based in Cleveland, Ohio. Raised in Columbus, Indiana, she spent the majority of her childhood crafting sculptures in her father’s wood shop from the scraps of his sophisticated and highly articulate furniture pieces, striving to match his creative brilliance and craftsmanship. The combination of these diverse fields allows for technical application of ergonomic design and knowledge strong enough to bring the imagined into reality. Today, her work consists of functional dinnerwares primarily made through moldmaking and handbuilding techniques, which combines industry with the touch of the homemade.
