Heidi Hentze

 

Heidi Hentze investigates porcelain and glaze in poetically folded pieces. Based on inspiration from architecture and kirigami, she challenges, with her skilled technical ability: material, gravity, and classic slab techniques. 

 

She meticulously assembles paper-thin clay constructions. Subsequently, in the lesser controllable firing process, an organic deformation adds to her pieces the beauty of decay- a poetic story.

 

An atmosphere of fragile existence and the presence of absence are often the focal points of Hentze's crisp, delicate pieces.
