Heidi Morel: Alaskan Potter

Artist Statement:
In an era where handmade objects are uncommon in daily life, I find it important to continue the craft tradition in both producing and using pottery. The porcelain forms I create on the potter’s wheel are rooted in the rich history of vessel making. I make the process my own by altering them for functional and aesthetic reasons to assure that each pot has its own intrinsic spirit by the time it comes out of the glaze kiln. Living and traveling throughout Alaska fuels my inspiration. Witnessing beautiful wildlife, hiking through striking landscapes, and observing natural patterns and textures informs the work I create in my studio. The handmade pottery I use in my kitchen is also a source of daily inspiration for new ideas, in such a manner where the old informs the new.

Artist Bio:
While attending college at the University of North Texas, I discovered my love of the ceramic process. After graduating with a BFA in ceramics, I moved to Johnson City, Tennessee where I was a resident artist at East Tennessee State University and a gallery assistant at Boone’s Creek Potters Gallery. I moved to Fairbanks in 2008 to attend graduate school at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. Here my explorations in clay stretched in many directions, from earth-art installations to sustainable kiln building. After obtaining my degree, I began Morel Pottery Studio and I have taught as an adjunct instructor. I live and work in Goldstream Valley with my three huskies
