Lana Heckendorn


I create functional porcelain pots that are wheel-thrown or hand-built, sometimes in combination, and have hand-drawn patterns. I use multiple glazes of different surface quality (satin, gloss, speckled) on each piece to create dynamic but quiet color compositions. The glazes are of my own making, the result of extensive testing to achieve particular surface qualities and colors. My making processes explore the relationship of form, color and surface pattern in functional pottery. I believe that functional objects should be enduring, not only in their craft, but in their beauty as well.
