Robbie Heidinger was born in the U.S.A and completed her degree in painting from New York University. She started being interested in working with clay from her desire to have a three-dimensional canvas. Her ceramic work of the last two decades is the result of a constant exploration of the intersection between painting and clay.
In her biomorphic pieces, she seeks the abstraction of organic forms. “My work is very tactile,” says the ceramist, “it fulfills the need to feel something natural and attractive, and it seduces and rewards its viewer with a connection to organic structures, to life.”
Robbie Heidinger's work is spread all over the world: in museums, galleries and universities. For the past two years, she has been a guest artist at Blanc de Chine International Artist Residency and Shangyu Celadon Modern International Artist Residency (China).
