Heather Bell Richardson, Potter

Using stoneware clay, I like to experiment with different techniques to produce decorative pieces & functional pottery. I strive to produce functional work that is something the user wants to hold, touch and use on a daily basis. My decorative vases are coil built & worked to produce a smooth finish.

I am a ceramic artist living and working in McKinney, Texas. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics as well as a Bachelor of Science in Design with an all level art teaching certificate from Texas Woman’s University in 1995. I taught Visual Art in the Lewisville Independent School District and was awarded a Lewisville Education Foundation Grant for papermaking.

I have been working with clay since my early teens and continue to experiment with the medium to develop new techniques and processes for my work. I am influenced and inspired by objects and textures found in nature. I love the combination of earth, water and fire to produce tangible and useful works of art. I currently have work displayed at the Chickasaw Nation ARTesian Gallery and in the gallery at the McKinney Art Studio.
