Jenny Heishman is a sculptor who began her artistic career creating functional ceramic works. She has since expanded her practice to incorporate all kinds of materials and to address the ideas of ceramic works as functional. Heishman uses familiar shapes and object references but by using a wide range of odd materials she is able to play with the objects that we know and make them appear new to us. Her work is playful and allows viewers a new look at the objects we think we already know.
Jenny Heishman lives and works in Seattle. She has had two solo shows at the James Harris Gallery as well as shows at Prole Drift and Howard House in Seattle. She has commissions around Seattle at the Seattle Art Fair, King County Public Library, and the Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park.
