Martha Hecker Ceramics

I make functional pottery. My pieces are mostly for holding food or drink or plant life and are meant to be touched, held, and enjoyed as an artistic part of everyday life. I work in a straightforward manner in order to respect the simplicity and humble nature of clay. This reveals the marks of the making as well as the unexpected results on the surface of the piece from the process of high-temperature firing.

My work is inspired by the ceramic traditions of East Asia but taken in a modern direction. I consider my work “traditional made modern”.
