HI! I'M HEDY!
My interest in clay began as a means to fulfill a class requirement, but the ceramics studio quickly became my sanctuary. It was the place I would go to hide from my other classes (sorry to all my teachers) and ponder my life and future while elbows deep in mud.
In college, I majored in ceramics and minored in entrepreneurship while building my business on the side. I had the opportunity to sell hundreds of pieces internationally and decided to take a real stab at making this a sustainable career after graduation.
I became an artist-in-residence on a farm in the Adirondack mountains of New York for a year, focusing on making work that I truly enjoyed and felt inspired by. After that, I attended a post-baccalaureate year at Syracuse University where I assisted in teaching a few classes and focused on honing my skills and trying new firing techniques.
Covid-19 quickly derailed everyone's plans so I moved home to Michigan to regroup and figure out my next "big step". I leased a beautiful pottery studio in Berkley, Michigan and have been happily playing in mud in my very first personal studio ever since!
