About the artist

For the past thirty-five years, acclaimed Canadian artist Steven Heinemann has transformed the medium of ceramics in Canada. The major retrospective Steven Heinemann: Culture and Nature examines Heinemann’s fascinating and evolving process to reveal how he achieves his wondrously tactile bowls, pods, and other universal shapes that embody the polarities between life and nature.
