Summer Artist Talk: Heather Bradley
Ceramicist Heather Bradley continues form & concept’s Summer Artist Talks series. She will speak about her artwork on Saturday, June 10, 2-3 pm. The talk takes place during form & concept’s One-Year Anniversary Exhibition, featuring new artwork from all of the gallery’s represented artists.
Heather Bradley’s ceramic forms reflect the repetition in the natural world, endlessly exploring variations on a theme. “I work in clay because I love to work with my hands. I love the feeling of the earth between my fingers and everything about the way the clay behaves. The potter’s wheel has proven to be the perfect tool for me because I want to make work with a sense of elegance, symmetry, and simple beauty. I work in multiples and I thrive in repetition. The wheel lends itself to this. With each experience on the wheel, my hands remember and learn.” Born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Heather studied art at the University of West Florida in Pensacola, Florida. She received a B.F.A. in Painting from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces in 2000, and in 2001 lived and worked in Galway, Ireland. Heather received her M.F.A. in Ceramics from N.M.S.U. in 2005. Currently she lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.Visit Event Website for More Info
